HAYA Band brings Mongolilan instruments and song for a concert at Thalian Hall on Sunday, April 8. The music is traditional (including the magical throat singing), yet has a contemporary "world music" feel. Listen here.
Tickets to see HAYA's performance are available at the Thalian Hall Box Office at 910-632-2285, online, or at the door. Note that telephone and online sales are not available in the hours prior to the performance, but walk-up Box Office sales are available until showtime.
From Thalian Hall:
HAYA Band is an award-winning world music collective representing a new era in folk music. The group has won many accolades, including from the China Music Awards (Best World Music Performance) and the Chinese Media Awards.
They have also received the Taiwan Golden Melody Award for “Best Crossover Music” on two occasions, and their album Silent Skiesis the best-selling soul/world music album of all time in Taiwan.
Composer Tan Dun, a fan of HAYA, says, “Listening to their music, your body feels like the Earth, your blood like the rivers, your eyes like the sky. They search constantly among traditional and contemporary music for the sound of the human soul. What HAYA expresses is not only their understanding of modern Mongolian music, but also their passion for nature, and the voice of their hearts.”
