Formed in 2002, ALTAN URAG is an ethnic folk rock band, whose music fuses traditional Mongolian sounds with contemporary influences.

The name Altan Urag can be loosely translated as “Kin of the Khan” or “Golden Lineage”, referring to Genghis Khan and his ancestors. The band’s vision is both to promote Mongolian culture to the world and to introduce traditional music to the young people of their country.

The band’s seven members are skilful players of traditional instruments:  morin khuur (horse-head fiddle), ikh khuur (grand horse-head fiddle),  bishguur (traditional horn) and yochin (hammered dulcimer) and percussion. The vocalists are exotic throat and long song singers, and have all been trained in traditional and classical Mongolian music.

Of Altan Urag’s music Sergei Bodrov says “… their distinctive vocal rhythms lend a sense of otherworldly strength to several scenes … I just fell in love with them. They have an amazing energy.” (Bodrov, www.mongolmovie.com)
