Equus is a gathering of four musicians of very diverse musical and cultural backgrounds who perform original contemporary folk and fusion pieces as well as the traditional music of Mongolia, and Asia Minor. Featuring the world renowned Mongolian throat singer Bukhu Ganburged (voice, morin khuur), and well known Australian musicians John Robinson (oud, turkish baglama, guitar), Peter Kennard (percussion), and double bassist Bertie McMahon, Equus is a bold, imaginative music project that succeeds in the formation of an entirely new sound.
Middle Eastern strings and a dynamic rhythm section, plus a strong component of improvisation make each performance a unique experience. The result is often hard to define, but is always spectacular. These are the traditional songs of Mongolia played as you have never heard them before.
