HAYA Band – Mongolian world music from China
HAYA’s music breaks free of boundaries and ethnic ties, mixing inherently unaffected and profound Mongolian music with pioneering musical elements representing a new era in folk music. Traditional instruments like the morin khuur (horse-head fiddle), tanbur as well as khoomei (throat singing), shaman drum and chanting are now given fresh life through HAYA.
The collective has gained international fame and won music awards in China and abroad. Their album Silent Skies is the best selling soul/world music album of all time in Taiwan.
HAYA Band’s music is refined and captivating. HAYA’s distinctively “ceremonious” shows provide us with an escape from this fast-paced modern world, a contemporary migration to another realm, one surrounded by the wonders of nature and life.
