Biography

Comprising some of the world’s best throat singers, Khusugtun are a six piece from Mongolia who combine traditional instrumentation with a cappella khoomei (throat singing). They play folk music with a slight twist, and, like a host of young Mongolian musicians, are embracing the traditional sounds of their ancestors.

Winners of the 2009 International Throat Singing competition, Khusugtun are also skilled in a variety of instruments that reflect various ethnic groups within Mongolia, including morin khuur (horse head fiddle), yatga (traditional zither), guitar, dombor (traditional Kazakh instrument), limbe (traditional flute), djembe (drum), and ikh khuur (great horse head fiddle).

Khusugtun regularly perform in Mongolia as part of the National Folk Song and Dance Ensemble, and have performed internationally in Russia, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy, Belgium, France, Holland, Switzerland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and China.
