Equus' unique blend of instruments and musical traditions, and its curiosity and delight in smashing boundaries has seen it become a festival hit from National Folk Canberra, Fairbridge WA, Woodford Folk Festival, Blue Mts Music Festival, Australia Day Darling Harbour and Viva La Gong, to name but a few.
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!!
"This is pure musical pleasure, exciting, fun and challenging, all at once." Music Forum magazine.
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 a rare opportunity to hear a unique form of singing live and up close, as well as amazing musicianship and rare fusions with a contemporary edge.
