‘A Mongolian Björk’ – The New York Times
Tales and ancient legends of epic heroes, wondrous beauties, and the grassy landscapes of southern Siberia… Traditional Mongolian and Buryat music with art-rock, pop, jazz, folk and ambient soundscapes, for a sound quite unlike anything else. Presenting a rich tapestry of traditional music from the Buryats, an ethnic Russian minority that practices shamanism and lives a nomadic lifestyle similar to their cousins in Mongolia. This music is what Namgar (‘White Cloud’ in Tibetan), a Moscow-based music group, has been working hard to preserve.
Led by prolific singer Namgar Lhasaranova (‘a Mongolian Björk’ – The New York Times) whose petite frame houses an astonishingly powerful voice, the group play new arrangements on traditional songs as old as the indigenous Buryats themselves.
