Sensational band from Inner Mongolia and Beijing, Hanggai, is stopping to do a show at the Barrymore on their way to Bonnaroo.They are a former punk band that has embraced their Mongolian roots including throat singing. Their music has a western/cowboy element and similar to Celtic and bluegrass on their folkier side. They jam with Bela Fleck and Marc Ribot. An incredible fun group that is unique and totally captivating. Tickets at barrymorelive.com and Barrymore outlets... $16 & $18 d.o.s.
"Hanggai have made the leap from folk phenomenon to crossover pioneers without losing their soul. Built from -- and meant for -- Mongolia's wide open spaces, this music will make you homesick for a place you've never been." (Rhapsody)
