Background

a Mongolian Björk

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.
