The Equus Trio
Bukhu, Andy & John
Mongolia meets the Australian Middle East! The stunning artistry and musicianship of Mongolian horse head fiddle player and throat singer Bukhu meets the beautiful lilt of Arabic Oud, Turkish and Bulgarian lute player John Robinson, intricate and melodic lines of vocals, darabuka and winds player Andy Busuttil.
EQUUS is the latin root of the word ‘equine’. The traditional songs of Mongolia played as you have never heard them before.
Exciting, danceable, pulsing, invigorating music.

Melbourne filmmaker Benj Binks travels to Mongolia to capture the incredibly vibrant hip hop scene.
Some of these hip hop artists cleverly blend centuries old Mongolian musical traditions with contemporary beats, to create a powerful new music movement that speaks to a post communist-era Mongolia.
A Q&A with the director follows this Melbourne premiere on Saturday 3 November.
