THE HOLIDAY TOUR

Alash Ensemble first joined the Flecktones in 2008 their first-ever holiday record, the Grammy-winning Jingle All The Way. Newsweek writes:

For good measure, toss in a thrumming rhythm similar to that of a jaw harp, but produced vocally-by the same person, at the same time. Now imagine 4 guys that can do that at the same time!
