Description

'Wherever I unsaddle my horse, there will be my home and my homeland" ? Bair Dugarov, Buriat poet

In Anda Union's second album this longing for homeland is strong and resonates with a mature intensity, inspiring new lyrics for old songs and new compositions for ancient tales.

Anda Union's thoroughly addictive combination of Mongolian musical styles is a reflection of their roots. Hailing from differing ethnic nomadic cultures the nine strong band unite tribal and music traditions from all over Inner Mongolia.

Anda Union all trained in traditional Mongolian music from a young age, many coming from musical families. They are part of a musical movement that is finding inspiration in old and forgotten songs. As a group they hold on to the essence of Mongolian music whilst creating a form of music that is new. They bring a wide range of musical instruments and vocal styles together, combining different traditions and styles of Mongolian music, developing an innovation previously unheard of.

Driven by their thirst to discover the power and magic of the rich and powerful Mongol traditions and culture, they have been stunning people all over the world with their music for the last fifteen years.

"Our music draws from all the Mongol tribes that Genghis Khan unified. We all have different ethnic backgrounds and we bring these influences into our music. There is a wealth of folk music for us to learn, so far our repertoire of songs is like a drop in the ocean"
