Fedor Tau


Fedor Tau (b. 1929 - 2006) is a throat singer from Tuva. "The wrestling with all it's ceremonies was similar to Mänchen-Helfen's description, but since I am not very much into that kind of martial arts, I mostly ignored the wrestling itself. Instead, I kept observing a certain referee, an old throat singer, Fedor Tau. We wanted to photograph and interview him and record his singing, which he promised. He would only have to finish his duties as a referee. Read more on Last.fm

"The wrestling with all it's ceremonies was similar to Mänchen-Helfen's description, but since I am not very much into that kind of martial arts, I mostly ignored the wrestling itself. Instead, I kept observing a certain referee, an old throat singer, Fedor Tau.

We wanted to photograph and interview him and record his singing, which he promised. He would only have to finish his duties as a referee. In the end it turned out that one of their duties was to gather up in a nearby forest to empty several bottles of araqa and vodka. So we had to forget about the recording." - Sami Jansson March, 18 [2006] Fiodor Tau, 77, renowned Tuvan throat-singer died.

He was born in the place of Sal in the Tes-Khem district on the 5th of September. He began practising sports, skiing mostly, while serving in the army in the 50-ties. Coming back to Tuva he did not drop skiing and became 12 times champion of Tuva in it. His record in the 50 km ski-race has not been improved.

He confessed later to Tuva-Online that it is due to sports that he could throat-sing till very old years. In the army his family name Tovuu was misheard by Russian military officials and he became Tau. He was awarded with the 'People's Khoomzhi of Tuva' tittle in 1993. Tau's only son Chingis is 28, when serving in the army in Chechnia he was wounded into the leg and is an invalid now.
