Members of the public can learn about the history of Mongolian folk music group AnDa Union, as well as learn their unique guttural throat singing technique, during two free events Thursday and Friday sponsored by University of Iowa International Programs.

The Confucius Institute will host an interactive throat singing workshop from 3 to 4 p.m. Thursday in Room 1117, University Capitol Centre. Members of AnDa Union will lead workshop participants through the traditional techniques that define their musical style.

A WorldCanvass Studio program from noon to 1 p.m. Friday in 2780 University Capitol Centre will offer audience members a glimpse into the history of AnDa Union’s traditional music and what it means to Mongolian culture. After the brief discussion with program host Joan Kjaer, members of the group will perform live.
