Join DJ Velvet Einstein on Wednesday, November, 13th @ 6:30PM when he airs an interview with Beijng based Mongolian folk // rock band, Hanggai. Tune in and hear about the origins of the band, working with Tan Dun, and the incorporation of a brass band on their recent release, Big Band Brass.
The scope of Hanggai’s music is almost as wide as the grasslands out of which they journey. Taking in the wild open spaces of Inner Mongolia and the teaming, churning streets of 21st century Beijing, Hanggai’s music embraces the looking-glass world of rock, pop and bluegrass as seen and heard by a new generation of Chinese. The six-piece Hanggai encompasses a hell of a lot of tradition, culture, fusion and folklore to produce their unique sound.
