The musicians of Alash are Bady-Dorzhu Ondar, Ayan-ool Sam, and Ayan Shirizhik. All were trained in traditional Tuvan music since childhood, first learning from their families and later becoming students of master throat singers. They are masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as throat singing and are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. The world-renowned group has a unique style that is fresh and new yet true to their roots.
Originally called Changy-Xaya, the group was formed at Kyzyl Arts College in 1999 and quickly became the resident traditional ensemble. At the same time, the young musicians were learning harmony, theory, staff notation and western classical music. They incorporated non-traditional elements and instruments that mesh well with the sound and feel of traditional Tuvan music. They use old instruments such as the murgu, limpi, and shoor (wind instruments) that are not frequently played in Tuva today, as well as distinctly western instruments such as the guitar and accordion. The outgrowth of this musical exploration is the ensemble Alash, which is named for the Alash River that flows through the musicians’ home region of Tuva. Kongar-ool Ondar was the first artistic director, and he played a key role in the development of the ensemble.
In 2004, Alash won first prize at the International Xöömei (throat singing) Symposium competition. In 2005, ensemble member Bady-Dorzhu Ondar was named the best male singer at the Üstüü-Xüree festival, and in 2006 he was named People’s Xöömeizhi (throat singer) of the Republic of Tuva, the youngest person ever to receive this prestigious award. At the 2008 International Xöömei Symposium, Bady-Dorzhu Ondar won the grand prize, while Ayan-ool Sam and Ayan Shirizhik won first and second prizes for individual throat singing. In 2009, Ayan Shirizhik was awarded the title “Distinguished Artist of Tuva.”
Alash has toured the United States every year since 2006, playing at a variety of venues and receiving much press attention for their unique musical talents. They also conduct workshops at schools and colleges to share their music and culture with American young people. In December 2008, December 2009 and December 2010, Alash toured with the legendary American group Béla Fleck and the Flecktones to promote the Flecktones’ Grammy winning album Jingle All the Way, which features Alash as guest artists.

Traci Molloy is an artist, collaborator, and social activist that creates figurative works of art on paper – primarily headshots – utilizing drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and digital processes. Her work, minimal in aesthetic, explores themes of adolescent culture, identity, and narrative in relation to gender, class, race, and violence. The pieces are actualized as a large, conceptually-related series. Molloy's goal as an artist is to make resiliency manifest in visual art. She is particularly curious about how humans process trauma and grief, what occurs emotionally and psychologically during the aftermath of violence, and our society's ability to recontextualize history to mask painful truths and nullify collective loss. Though the content of Molloy's work is often difficult, the finished pieces are celebratory, acknowledging the spirit and strength of the individuals she depicts.
