Hanggai Band

Hanggai Band is a folk music group from Beijing who specialize in a blend of Mongolian folk music and more modern styles such as punk rock. The band consists of Hurcha (vocals), Ilchi--the former frontman from a punk band-- (Tobshuur /two stringed lute), Hugejiltu (Morin Khuur horse-head fiddle), Li Dan (Percussion), Xu Jingchen (guitar/banjo), and Wu Junde (bass). The band has created a particularly unique sound blending Mongolian folk music with more popular forms such as punk. Some of the members are ethnic Mongolians while the remaining are ethnic Han who specialize in Mongolian instruments. All of the members hail from Inner Mongolia and Beijing. Although the core of their sound is based around the morin khuur and the tobushuur, two traditional instruments, the band also incorporates some much less traditional fare. In their first album, Introducing Hanggai, the band made heavy use of electric guitars, computer programming, bass, and banjoes in order to create a more seamless and modern sound. All the songs are adaptations of Mongolian folk songs and are sung in Mongolian incorporating throat singing, a Mongolian technique in which the artist emits two different pitches at the same time.
