Deep Cuts: International

Hanggai - He Who Travels Far2008's "Introducing Hanggai", also reviewed on LoBF, seemed to be a once in a generation album of inspired ethnic Chinese ballads and traditional war songs from Mongolia in the north and far west of mainland China.

The Bejing group's follow up album takes everything that Hanggai did well on Introducing and improves upon it in many undeniable ways: the unmistakably powerful combination of master musicians, lyrical reflections of the ancient horse culture of Mongolia, and the sheer urgency of their performance continue to make Hanngai an internationally sought after group.
