Playing tracks by

Hugejiletu Morinhur and Ajinai - (阿基耐).

Parker Mah caught up with HuGeJiLetu (胡格吉乐图), master throat singer and horse-head fiddle player, at this year’s HubSession performance at the Eastern Bloc on January 18, 2013. Born in Inner Mongolia and now based in Beijing, he spearheaded a folk-fusion revival with his band Dawanggang (大忘杠), and is still active with his current band Ajinai (阿基耐). Their self-titled independent debut mixes Mongolian folk and contemporary sounds.
This interview was recorded before his Montreal appearance with the HubSession project, an initiative of LOJIQ, that brought together electro-acoustic musicians from 4 countries for a series of collaborative performances, the last of which was held in Montreal.
GROS MERCI à Gabrielle Mercier-Richard & Claude Lorrain-Bouchard de leur aide pour la traduction & l’interpretation!
