Mongolian horse Fiddle meets an Oud (The Wood in Arabic) in a unique fusion of galloping Mongolian rhythms, sparkling harmonic singing, and the warm, evocative nuances of the oud, and other exotic strings. An ethereal delight!
Horse and wood is recent project combining the sounds of the Mongolian Horse Fiddle and Harmonic throat singing from Bukhchuluun Ganburged with the classic Arabian textures of the Oud playing of John Robinson. The result is frequently undefinable but always spectacular.
This unusual Mehfil (an Indian cultured gathering with music and dance) features Bukhu, an oustanding Mongolian throat singer who plays the horse–hair fiddle, performing in collaboration with Nayika Group featuring Indu Balachandran (Karnatic vocalist) and Sivakumar Sethupathi (South Indian drummer). Evocative of the steppes of Mongolia, the throat singing enhances and complements Karnatic music, in an original and innovative concert.
