The Historic Temple Theatre in Viroqua, WI is proud to bring this innovative group of musical friends to its stage. Tickets are on sale now at www.historictempletheatre.com , and locally at the Viroqua Food Co-op and Parrish Music & Gifts in downtown Viroqua. Adult tickets are $15 and Student tickets are $5. Doors open at 6:30. This once-in-a-lifetime performance is presented with thanks to Arts Midwest World Fest, National Endowment for the Arts, 3M Foundation, the Wisconsin Arts Board, Driftless Cafe, and Accounting & Tax Service of Viroqua.

Anda Union - meaning ‘good friends’ in Mongolian - describe themselves as Music Gatherers, digging deep into Mongol traditions and unearthing forgotten music. Finding inspiration in old and forgotten songs, Anda Union draws on a tradition of magical music that had all but disappeared during China's recent tumultuous past, holding on to the essence of Mongolian music whilst creating a form of music that is new.

Anda Union combines different traditions and styles of music from all over Inner and Outer Mongolia, developing an innovation previously unheard of. Traditional instruments including the horse-head fiddle, the three-holed flute, and the Mongolian versions of the dulcimer, zither, lute, and mouth harp are used to paint a portrait of their grassland home. The main singing style performed by Anda Union is khoomii, commonly referred to as throat singing, a traditional type of Mongolian overtone singing, which replicates the sounds of nature.

“Our music draws from all the Mongol tribes that Genghis Khan unified. We all have different ethnic backgrounds and we bring these influences into our music,” the group has said of themselves. “There is a wealth of folk music for us to learn. So far our repertoire of songs is like a drop in the ocean.”

Formed in 2003 in the Xilingol Grassland area of Inner Mongolia, Anda Union’s addictive combination of Mongolian musical styles is a reflection of their roots. Trained in traditional Mongolian music from a young age, and hailing from differing ethnic nomadic cultures, the nine-strong band unites tribal and music traditions from all over Inner Mongolia.

The group is a part of a musical movement that is finding inspiration in old and forgotten songs whilst creating a form of music that is new. By bringing a wide range of musical instruments and vocal styles together in a fusion of traditions in Mongolian music, Anda Union develops an innovation previously unheard of, and that Genghis Khan himself would be proud of.

Keenly aware of the threat to the Grasslands and their age-old Mongolian culture, Anda Union is driven by their fight for the survival of this endangered way of life, by keeping the essence of the music alive.

Driven by their thirst to discover the magic of the rich and powerful Mongol traditions and culture, they have been stunning people all over the world with their music for the last fifteen years.
