AnDa Union

Event Details
Event Title:ANDA UNION (Tickets)
Event Description:

Presented in Partnership with KLRU and the Asian American Cultural Center

In 2011, Inner Mongolia’s music and cultural sensation AnDa Union made their Texas debut on the Bass Concert Hall stage to an enthusiastic audience. The group has since performed around the world and is the focus of the documentary, AnDa Union: From the Steppes to the City, which follows the musicians on a journey through the Inner Mongolian grasslands. Texas Performing Arts welcomes AnDa Union back for a command performance.

Part of a musical movement that finds inspiration in old and forgotten songs, this vibrant young group of musicians and singers draw from a repertoire of enchanting music that all but disappeared during China’s tumultuous recent past. Holding on to the essence of Mongolian music while creating a form of new music, they perform with indigenous instruments – the morin khuur (horse head fiddle), the maodun chaoer (a three-holed flute), Mongolian versions of the lute, and the mouth harp – combining different traditions and styles of music from all over Inner and Outer Mongolia.

“The band’s dynamic sound had the audience enthralled…The final song, ‘Galloping Horses,’ evoked a frenzied stampede that sent concertgoers stumbling, crazed and uplifted, out into the night.” – The Wesleyan Argus
