Renowned Mongolian Throat Singer Bukhu Ganburged comes to Smith's Alternative in a unique collaboration with some of Sydney's finest world musicians,
Equus' unique blend of instruments and musical traditions, and its curiosity and delight in smashing boundaries has seen it become a festival hit from National Folk Festival, Canberra, Fairbridge WA, Woodford Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival to name but a few.
Expect songs and epic tales from Mongolian mythology recast into a contemporary setting that is born from a deep respect and knowledge of traditional musical sources. Expect middle eastern and Turkish ï¬‚avours, expect dancing to north African grooves, expect even a swing jazz standard or two!!
This music is about meetings, of people and traditions, and of music. EQUUS is a bold, imaginative music project that succeeds in the formation of an entirely new sound.
These are the traditional songs of Mongolia played as you have never heard them before, plus new unique world music fusion pieces. This is a rare opportunity to hear a unique form of singing live and up close, as well as amazing musicianship and rare fusions with a contemporary edge.
