Ongod Buda musique 2012

"Amongst today’s Mongolian music groups, Altai Khangai stands out in that it remains very attached to a specific region of Western Mongolia: the Altai and Khangai Mountains, where throat singing was established long before it expanded to other regions of the republic. Formed in 1995, the band notably comprises Ganzorig Nergui (morin khuur fiddle, tovshuur lute, aman khuur bamb), Ganbold Muukhai (morin khuur fiddle, tovshuur lute), and the lady musician Garavkhuu Badmaabazar (yoochin and yatga zithers, hets drum, small bones)."

Wild Tune Stray Rhythm Jaro Records 2013

"Dawanggang is a musical ensemble created by Song Yuzhe, an eclectic musician from the North East of China. While the name Dawanggang has no other meaning than what you see above, the content of the music reaches far and broad, from nomadic themes of Western China to broad experimental lines, touching on folk tales and giving a big sense of space. The band is of flexible composition and wants to bring together musicians from all sorts of musical, cultural, ethnical backgrounds so as to reach beyond differences and create new musical dimensions."

Anda Union - The Herdsman
Anda Union The Herdsman Anda Union
Homeland Hohhot Records 2016

"Anda Union's thoroughly addictive combination of Mongolian musical styles is a reflection of their roots. Hailing from differing ethnic nomadic cultures the nine strong band unite tribal and music traditions from all over Inner Mongolia, Anda Union bring a wide range of musical instruments and vocal styles together in a fusion that Genghis Khan himself would have been proud of. Keenly aware of the threat to the Grasslands and their age old Mongolian culture, Anda Union are driven by their fight for the survival of this endangered way of life, by keeping the essence of the music alive."

FINGERGAP & Fedor Yury - Raining Moment
FINGERGAP & Fedor Yury Raining Moment
Shan Shan 160 SEEAHOLE 2022

"Hong Kong electronic musician FINGERGAP is often accused of walking too fast.

The lyrics of the musician's first original album "Shan Shan 160" are all about stumbling through life, but just as he is enthusiastic about translating Chinese love songs into rapid and robotic Footwork tunes, his new music, while exasperated and melancholic, still manages to maintain a high speed. The tracks in the album are presented chronologically from a dawn, in which Kazakh-born singer Fedor Yury's placid voice is deliberately misplaced on the hasty and turbulent beats of Footwork music, as a synecdoche for a restless yearning to rush through the crowded city."

really interesting music.
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:47:07 AM
@ good mental (Host) Today's show has been a great un-birthday present for my mental goodness ... I'm working away on some important writing, and I couldn't have a better soundtrack -- both mellowing and energizing -- to go with it. Thank you!
good mental (host) 11:47:55 AM
glad to hear it! hope your work is going well
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:49:58 AM
@ good mental (host) Yes, it is, thanks. I'll have to include a major collective shoutout to the WPRB show hosts in my Acknowledgements section. :-))
Richard from Rocky Hill 11:56:46 AM
I really enjoy Asian sounds -- from traditional to pop and progressive rock -- so today's playlist has been especially awesome.
