Phurpa is a Russian collective that performs ritual music related to the Bön tradition – the oldest pre-Buddhist practice of Tibetan origin – as part of its unique performances. In their rituals, they use authentic ritual instruments and a specific tantric type of overtone singing (a kind of throat singing). The founder of the group is Alexei Tegin, who learned from the masters of the Gyumay and Gyuto orders.
Tegin began exploring traditional and ritual music in the early 1990s. After he began the Bön I Dzogchen practice, he decided to start Phurpa in 2003. All members of the collective regularly participate in the rituals and rituals of the Bön tradition, both in theory and in practice. Their performances are always full of symbolism and shamanic, meditative and mystical.
