HAYA’s music breaks free of boundaries and ethnic ties, mixing inherently unaffected and profound Mongolian music with pioneering musical elements representing a new era in folk music. The morin khuur (horse-head fiddle), tanbur, khoomei (throat singing), shaman drum, chanting – have been passed down for centuries, and now through HAYA are given fresh life. This award winning world music collective has won the Best World Music Performance at the China Music Awards and the Chinese Media Awards, as well as the Taiwan Golden Melody Award for the “Best Crossover Music” and their album Silent Skies is the best selling soul/world music album of all time in Taiwan.
HAYA Band’s “Migration” Concert employs innovative musical language alongside classic traditional songs, fusing a variety of musical elements such as chants, the Mongolian horsehead fiddle, plucked string instruments, throat singing, and shaman drums. Their music is refined and captivating. Their shows have a distinct “ceremonious” feel. Migration provides us with a path for escape from this fast-paced modern world, a contemporary migration to another realm, one surrounded by the wonders of nature and life.
