Profile
Namgar is a four-piece music group that originally performed traditional Buryat and Mongolian music, but has also begun incorporating sounds from rock and electronic music into its style. Its leader, Namgar Lhasaranova, comes from the east borderland where three countries, Russia, Mongolia, and China meet. She inherited a rich singing tradition of the Buryat people who reside in Russian regions of Buryatia and Agin Buryat Region. The group comprises singing of Namgar Lhasaranova and instrumentalists from Mongolia. Instruments of the group include morin huur, chanza, traditional percussion, along with Western instruments such as guitar, bass, and keyboards. Namgar Lhasaranova also collaborates frequently with other artists around the world, including Markus Reuter, who has produced some of her recordings.
