Mongolian, Japanese and US artists come together for a fascinating collaboration, highlighting the popular Mongolian art of khoomei (throat singing) with the driving rhythms of Japanese taiko (drums). The Khoomei-Taiko Ensemble features Shinetsog Dorjnyam (khoomei), Shoji Kameda and Tetsuro Naito (taiko), the legendary folk musician Tserendorj Tseyen (magtaal-praise songs, morin khuur - horsehead fiddle, jaw harp), Kaoru Watanabe (fue and Noh Kan-flutes) and Miki Maruta (koto - zither). The program also includes the captivating voice of Mongolia's urtiin duu (long song) vocalist Khongorzul Ganbaatar, a featured artist in Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Project.
The Khoomei-Taiko Ensemble 2009 programs are supported in part, by the Trust for Mutual Understanding, the Asian Cultural Council and the Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN program.
Presented by World Music Institute in association with Asia Society.
