Festival of live music and faith “Ustuu-Khuree” will be held from 4 to 8 July, 2019

Dear friends! We are glad to inform you that the XX (Twentieth) anniversary festival of live music and faith “Ustuu-Khuree” will be held from 4 to 8 July, 2019 in the city Chadaan, Dzun-Khemchik district of the Tyva Republic. We remind you that the festival takes place in field conditions, on the famous glade, in the shadow of the age-old red larches.

However, we ask you to be prepared for all caprices of weather and possible movements in time and space. The participants of last year’s festival like no one have known violence of one of the 5 elements - the Great Water. (For the uninformed, its reference to the special report “The Taiga Symphony of Water” produced by the Tuva television and radio company).

And now about the main thing. About music. Classic music on the grass or symphony in the coniferous forest performed by the consolidated orchestra from Tuva and Khakassia. Brass Orda with horse show and archery. Founders and patriarchs of tuvinian rockYatkha and ambitious Hartyga will break accordeons of pop music and soviet musical editing! And there are many different and unexplored early world stars. The XX festival mix will charm not only lovers of experiments. It will bring together in one place khuresh-fighters, motoriders, fire-men, beautiful models and all kinds of adventurers. (The details in the program which will appear later. According to “Tuvinian time” changes will be possible).

In conclusion. About Tuvinian time seriously. In the form in which it was in the early years of the festival it is not exist more. Tuva is changing, people are changing. And the attitude to time too. Behind the visible contemplation is the hard work of many people. Do not demand much from us, be yourself, but respect others. The festival is alive and has survived thanks to the cranks who came to us every year and shared their most intimate things: dreams, talents and souls. Not for the money. So, ahead XX jubilee.

A lot of things have changed over the years: roads, houses, cars, clothes, food, money, etc. But the glory to the patron spirits of the festival “Ustuu-Khuree” - he ability to be human has remained unchanged. Among live music and live faith.

Sincerely yours,

organizing committee of the festival.

About Ustuu-Huree
I don’t remember exactly when I first saw Ustuu-Huree. As far as I can remember , there was always a place for Ustu-Huree in my heart. For me, it is not just a place of personal pilgrimage or ancestral relic. When I accidentally hear or read the words “Ustu-Huree”, these majestic ruins immediately appear before my eyes. Prior to a trip to Ustu-Huree, I always get butterflies in my stomach as if I’m going out on a date with a loved one after a long separation. While praying, closing my eyes, I see the ruins of Ustu-Huree. I believe that the energy that it radiates, gives me strength and helps persevere through life’s challenges. It is enough to visit this place once and you will understand what I’m writing about. You will surely want to return, enthralled by the temple.
Thousands of people from all over the world come to see Ustu-Huree annually, to visit the festival of world music there. Every year since 1999, a festival was held there to raise funds to restore the temple. It was restored, but first, some history.Old3 IRGIT VALERA00097
The majestic Buddhist monastery was founded in 1905 by the Noah Noyon of the Haidyp. The temple complex was built by Chinese architects which took them two years. The  Tibetan Lama Kuntana Rimpoche was also invited to work on the project. During those days religion played much greater role in the lives of Tuvan people than it plays today. Residents of all villages of the Daa kozhuun (district) assembled to help construction efforts. To this day, for residents of Dzun-Khemchik, Sut-Kholsky, Ovursky, Bai-Taiginsky, Barun-Khemchik, Cha-Kholsky and Ulug-Khemsky districts, which were once part of the Da’a kozhuun, Ustu-Huree remains the greatest shrine.
After a serving the people for a quarter of a century the monastery was closed in 1930. In 1937 communists completely destroyed it, but the clay walls remained. Lamas who served in Ustu-Huree, were repressed and executed.
Despite the ban on religious practice, the ruins of the temple served as a reminder for the Tuvan people about the faith of their ancestors. 55 years after the destruction of the temple in 1992, His Holiness the Dalai Lama XIV visited Tuva. The power which came from the ancient ruins impressed him, and he said that the lamp of the temple had not yet gone out.
Encouraged by this message religious Tuvans began to revive the temple. In 1999, Igor Dulush with a team of like-minded people first organised the Chadan Festival to increase public awareness of the need to restore the temple. The festival is held annually in the Chadane, helping local and other folk musicians showcase their art for a good cause.
A new temple was built according to the model of the destroyed Ustu-Huree temple near the ruins. The visit of the Dalai Lama and the festival gave new life to the temple. Today, prayers are held there, lamas receive believers and collectively revive the ancient monastery.
The territory of the temple Ustu-Huree is an amazing place. In my school years, my classmates and I fulfilled a pilgrimage there in temperatures far below zero. We were going to have fun, but with good in mind. We crossed a 6-kilometre path in one direction easily and cheerfully, and were praying on the way back home. We had nowhere to get warm, but none of us fell ill after this trip, despite the unfriendly weather. In fact, the trip gave us energy, as opposed to taking it away!
Ustu-Huree is a special place of power, where each of us, irrespective of religion and nationality acquires peace of mind and harmony with the world. It is surely worth coming to Tuva just to experience this ancient relic.
