Concert: Khusugtun Ethnic-Ballad Group of Mongolia


Llewellyn Hall, School of Music (100), Childers Street, ANU


Tuesday, 1 December, 2015 - 19:00 to 20:30

In collaboration with the Embassy of Mongolia in Australia, the ANU Mongolian Institute is hosting a unique Mongolian music performance by the celebrated Khusugtun Ethnic-Ballad Group of Mongolia.

The Khusugtun Ethnic-Ballad Group will perform throat singing – a classic form of polyphone-style singing in Mongolia’s creative folk art. With this polyphone style, Khusugtun has won the Golden Medal at a cappella category from the DELPHIC III World Art Olympus in the Republic of Korea in 2009, and was the runner-up in “Asia's Got Talent” in 2015. This type of singing is also registered as part of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Tickets are available via Ticketek.
