Among the thousands of faceless volunteers working on Friday's Rose Parade, few are more anonymous than Ralph Leighton. That's fitting, because among the 107 Tournament of Roses entries, none is more obscure than Leighton's. The 43-year-old Los Angeles man plans to send a trio of yodeling Russian cowboys clip-clopping and khoomei -ing down Colorado Boulevard.

Three musicians from the Central Asia region of Tuva will make a rare appearance in Orange County this weekend to present the sights and decidedly different sounds of their culture. The highlight of the Saturday performance at the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art will be the exotic vocal performance known as "throat singing," in which the singer lets out a light whistle and a deep chant at the same time.

Three Russian singing cowboys who rode in last week's Rose Parade to the sound of a high school band plan to march to their own beat back to Pasadena today. Singing horsemen from the remote Russian area of Tuva--who were unexpectedly drowned out by a band marching behind them on New Year's Day--will stage free concerts at noon and 7:30 p.m. at Caltech. Tuvans are known for their unusual yodeling--their ability to sing two notes at once.

Bowers Museum director Peter Keller may have his museum booked until 1995, having traveled to China and other far climes to oversee every detail of his scheduled exhibits, but I'll bet he doesn't know he's going to have a yurt full of Tuvans on his lawn.
