Purba is a musical and theatre project from Moscow, Russia, formed by Svyatoslav Ponomarev, Alexey Tegin (also in Phurpa) and Igor Yanchoglov (also in Lungta).
Their music is based upon the ancient sacral ceremonies of Bon tradition (pre-Buddhist religion of Tibet) and four schools of Tibetan Buddhism (Nyingmapa, Kagyupa, Sakyapa, Gelugpa). The musicians play authentic Tibetan traditional instruments (rgaling, dung-chen, dung-dkar, rkangling, drilbu, damaru, rolmo, rgna), use overtone singing as well as musique concrete, noise and industrial.
