Mongolian music band to perform in Tehran

Tehran, Dec 30, IRNA – Mongolian music band ‘Egschiglen Trio’ is scheduled to perform in the 33rd Fajr Music Festival in Tehran.

Egschiglen band has been focusing on contemporary music since it started almost 20 years ago.

Egschiglen ensemble was founded in 1991 by master students of the conservatory of Ulaanbaatar.

“The group is searching systematically for the sound dimensions of this repertory with their traditional instruments and the Central Asian vocal style,” according to International Office for Global Music (Alba Kultur).

“They explored the sound dimensions of works by contemporary Mongolian composers with their fine-tuned arrangements and using traditional instruments from Mongolia and Central Asian vocal techniques. “

“Some of their pieces have chamber-music quality with filigree and transparent sounds, others convince with the original enchanting power of Mongolian folk traditions, taking us from the sound of the Mongolian horses’ hooves to the clear silence of the Gobi desert. But their music is characterized also by its deeply natural, compelling force.”

“In Egschiglen’s performances, tunes from shamanist or Buddhist tradition, which are common in Central Asia, impress through their diversity of expression and intricate arrangements. In their own unique, distinctive way, the musicians breathe new life into them, thus rapturing audiences all over the world.”

The 33rd Fajr Music Festival is slated to be held on January 10-20 in Tehran.
