Anda Union's haunting harmonies and vibrant strings evoke the endless beauty of the Mongolian grasslands. Combining throat singing and long song with horse-head fiddles and two-strong lutes they bring this powerful and ancient music to life as never heard before.
Hailing from different ethnic nomadic cultures, the ten-strong band unite tribal and musical traditions from all over Inner Mongolia. Anda Union bring a wide range of musical instruments and vocal styles together in a fusion that Ghengis Khan himself would have been proud of. They are part of a musical movement that is finding inspiration in old and forgotten songs, drawing on a repertoire of magical music that had almost disappeared in China's recent tumultuous past. As a group they hold on to the essence of Mongolian music, whilst creating a form of music that is new.
