What do you know? They have their own site. Check out the tours link. They travel around and perform a lot.
AMG Review
Wiki entry on Huun-Huur-Tu
Tuvan Throat singing falls under, "Overtone singing" and other groups employ this technique as well. More on Overtone Singing.
The Orphan's Lament isn't just solid Throat Singing, there's a lot of good traditional music backing it up. Once again, if you've never heard of this before, Huun-Huur-Tu - The Orphan's Lament
is a great introduction.

I have another album by these guys, one track is just a guy riding his horse while gargling. Kind of odd, but the rest of the album is really good. These guys really are great.
