Chirgilchin, a throat singing group from Tuva, a small Russian province north of Western Mongolia, will perform in concert at the United Methodist Church in Langley. The concert is at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23 and is a benefit for SEVA, an international health organization working to build sustainable programs in underserved communities around the globe.

The title of the organization takes its name for the Sanskrit word meaning "selfless service."

Chirgilchin sings with haunting overtone harmonics, while playing uplifting music on their handmade instruments. Tickets cost $17 in advance and $20 at the door.

Advance tickets are available at Useless Bay Coffee Company in Langley. Advance tickets are recommended due to limited seating at the church. For more info, call Bob Effertz at 360-341-1739.
