Hanggai

August 11, 2012

Hailing from China, Mongolian folk/punk ensemble Hanggai blends traditional Mongolian folk sounds and instruments with modern punk rock styles. Their name is a Mongolian word that refers to an idealized natural landscape of sprawling grasslands, mountains, rivers and streams.

Hanggai's songs are sung in Mongolian incorporating throat singing, a technique in which the vocalist emits two different pitches at the same time. By melding folk and popular styles of music, Hanggai creates a unique sound to express the voice of a generation yearning to reconnect with its ethnic roots in the face of a domineering mainstream culture.
