Huun-Huur-Tu, Carmen Rizzo and Dhani Harrison’s album Dreamers In The Field out now via Dark Horse Records + Limited edition vinyl available on Record Store Day



April 19, 2024 (New York, NY) – Dark Horse Records is proud to announce the release of Dreamers In The Field, the first-ever collaboration between Huun-Huur-Tu, Carmen Rizzo and Dhani Harrison. Mastered by Paul Hicks (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, John Lennon, George Harrison), Dreamers In The Field is now available for streaming everywhere while a very special, limited edition clear vinyl pressing is being released exclusively for Record Store Day on April 20. Fans can listen to/share the new project HERE and watch/share the official video for the album track “Boidus” HERE.
Dreamers In The Field blends Huun-Huur-Tu’s trademark throat singing and traditional Tuvan instruments with the modern production and instrumentation from 2x Grammy-nominated producer and musician Carmen Rizzo (Seal, Alanis Morissette, Coldplay) and Grammy-Award winning musician Dhani Harrison. Recorded all over the world – from Los Angeles to Europe and Russia to Dhani’s very own F.P.S.H.O.T. Studios in Henley-on-Thames, UK – this beautiful album is mesmerising from start to finish.

“This album is more than just a collaboration for us,” explains Huun-Huur-Tu’s Radik Tyulyush. “It brings us to a crossroads of many different styles, rhythms and languages. Carmen and Dhani, together with Huun-Huur-Tu, have created something beyond mere collaboration; it is a celebration of beauty, harmony, love and kindness. Words are not necessary; you just need to listen and experience the journey of Dreamers In The Field to see how beautiful and diverse Mother Earth is with us.” 
“This is my third album collaborating with Huun-Huur-Tu,” reflects Carmen Rizzo. “We wanted to do something different and challenging and adding my dear friend Dhani to this journey made it complete. What Dhani brought was more than just his musical talents; his passion and knowledge for ethnic and indigenous music from all over the globe speak for themselves. When we started to record, everything fell into place organically. We wanted this album to take the listener on a mesmerising journey of beauty until the end.”

“It is extremely difficult for me to explain in so few words what Huun-Huur-Tu means to me on a musical, let alone, a spiritual level,” explains Dhani Harrison. “The discovery of their catalogue changed my life permanently not only in the direction of the music I make but inwardly too, in the type of frequencies I wish to let into my system from now onwards. The amount of time I have spent listening to these master musicians since I first discovered their work probably exceeds all other music combined. I genuinely believe that our introduction was a divine gift that is given to very few and I will forever cherish the trust that has been bestowed upon me in letting me be a part of their magical musical journey. For those of you who are unfamiliar with their work, I hope that this record can serve as a jump-off point from which to dive into the infinite resounding love frequency that permeates their entire catalogue.”

About Huun-Huur-Tu
Huun-Huur-Tu is a music group from Tuva, a Russian Federation republic situated on the Mongolian border. The most distinctive characteristic of the band’s music is throat singing, in which the singers sing both the note (drone) and the drone’s overtone(s), thus producing two or three notes simultaneously. The overtone may sound like a flute, whistle or bird but is actually solely a product of the human voice. The group primarily uses native Tuvan instruments such as the igil, khomus (Tuvan jaw harp), doshpuluur, and dünggür (shaman drum). However, in recent years, the group has begun to selectively incorporate Western instruments, such as the guitar. While the thrust of Huun-Huur-Tu’s music is fundamentally indigenous Tuvan folk music, they also experiment with incorporating not only Western instruments but electronic music as well.
