Bio

Founded and led by Quansheng, a professor of the Morin Khuur (Mongolian horse head fiddle) at the Music School of the Central University of Nationalities, HAYA are four ethnic Mongolian Chinese who have sought to offer a reinterpretation of Mongolias rich music heritage that embodies both the spirit of the grasslands and of modern day urban Chinese Mongolians alike. The name HAYA means "margin" in Mongolian and indicates a sub-culture and non-mainstream identity. It also refers to a legendary diamond in ancient India that represented spiritual healing.
After earning initial fame for composing the music for Zhang Yimou's movie Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles in 2007, HAYA released their first album Wolf Totem which was awarded Best Crossover Album at the 2009 Taiwan Golden Melody Music Award. For their second album Silent Sky they were joined by the phenomenal talent of Daiqing Tana, whose breathtaking vocals softened yet further refined their sound.
More awards have followed and HAYA are set to achieve their dream of promoting Chinese/Mongolian culture throughout the World, expressing the importance of love, unity and living in balance with nature.
