Anda Union, Edinburgh 1st February
Don't miss Anda Union who perform in Edinburgh 1st February. Read more below.
The brilliant 9-piece band Anda Union from Inner Mongolia first toured the UK in 2013 and stole the show everywhere. The band members all grew up in families 'with the music', several of whom still live in the traditional Mongolian way, and came together at music college in Hohhot, their capital city. There they were able to integrate traditional forms - like the now-famous throat singing - into creating a sound uniquely and mysteriously Mongolian but with a strong appeal to a western sensibility. If you miss this opportunity to see the band live, you can be assured of hearing about the concert for a long time afterwards from those who were lucky enough to get tickets in time!
