Part Mongolian history lesson, part concert hall recital, AnDa Union’s powerful performances are a masterful reimagining of nearly forgotten styles of traditional Mongol music. Harkening back to the days of Genghis Khan, this rich heritage of ancient music is intermingled with the modern influences of the many disparate tribes of both Inner and Outer Mongolia.The musicians expertly play a wide variety of traditional lutes, flutes and mouth harps, singing in traditional and mystical vocal forms.
The 2012 national tour of the AnDa Union is part of a major, multi-year cultural exchange with Minneapolis-based Arts Midwest, the Chinese Ministry of Culture, and the US Major University Presenter’s consortium. Support for the tour has been provided by the Ministry of Culture, People’s Republic of China.
