Young Mongolian band whose songs and tunes reflect the full vastness of their remote homeland
A major hit at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Anda Union are a young Mongolian band whose songs and tunes reflect the full vastness of their remote homeland, drawing on influences derived “from all the tribes that Genghis Khan unified”. An astounding array of throat singing techniques, accompanied by traditional instrumentation, combine with “melodies as sturdy as great Celtic folk themes” (Guardian).
Widely tipped as successors to such seminal Nordic bands as JPP and Väsen, Finnish/Norwegian seven-piece Frigg unite deep traditional roots with a gloriously freewheeling array of Americana, Celtic and Balkan influences.Featuring multiple fiddles, mandolin, cittern, Estonian bagpipes, dobro, guitar and double bass, their dazzling virtuosity and hugely exhilarating live shows place them firmly at the forefront of contemporary international folk.
