About


Namgar

A fusion of Buryat-Mongolian tradition and modern rock/jazz elements with haunting woman voice of Namgar, the Buryat star of traditional and modern music, and a blend of traditional and modern instruments that bring together images of the great wide open and modern drive.

The heart of group, Namgar whose name  means “white cloud”, grew up in a tiny village of Kunkur near the border crossing of Mongolia,at SIberia(Buryat Republic).

In the heart of Siberia, under bottomless blue sky, the songs sung by Namgar were born. She masters the mysteries of the great wide open, voices of spirits of mountains and forests. Love to the melodies sung by her granny and her father, the wish to maintain the tradition that is becoming extinct, brought her on festival stages around the world. She sings long songs and yokhor dance tunes, uliger legends of mighty champions, precise arrows, and swift horses, just as they used to sing ages ago, with music arranged so that the jewels of her singing were accessible on world music stage.
