Transcontinental Vibrations: EQUUS ft Bukhu (Mongolia)

Transcontinental Vibrations proudly presents Sydney band EQUUS featuring Mongolian throat singer BUKHU

Expect songs and epic tales from Mongolian mythology recast into a contemporary setting that is born from a deep respect and knowledge of traditional musical sources. Expect middle eastern and turkish flavours - expect dancing to north african grooves - expect even a swing jazz standard or two!!

Since forming in Early 2013, Equus have wowed audiences with their unique sound at the National Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival, Parramasala Festival, Woodford folk Festival, Australia Day Darling Harbour. Viva La Gong, the Fairbridge Festival in WA, and Denmark Festival of Voice, to name a few, as well as Sydney's world music and jazz venues.

This music is about meetings, of people and traditions, and of musics. EQUUS is a bold, imaginative music project that succeeds in the formation of an entirely new sound.
These are the traditional songs of Mongolia played as you have never heard them before, plus new unique world music fusion pieces.

"This is pure musical pleasure, exciting, fun and challenging, all at once." Music Forum magazine.
