Music Without Borders: Hanggai + Aurelio Martinez

June 9, 2011 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Hanggai
From Inner Mongolia, via Beijing, come six-piece Hanggai, bringing their unique sounds of Mongolian folk music to the stage. Adapted from local songs of the inner Mongolian grasslands, lead singer Ilchi uses the extraordinary art of growled overtone technique (throat singing) alongside traditional instrumentation, providing audiences with an evening of otherworldly music and Asian crossover music at its best.

Aurelio Martinez
With a sound as warm and unpretentious as his Honduran upbringing, Aurelio Martinez has spent almost his entire life transforming the sights, sounds, and smells of West Africa and the Caribbean into a carefully crafted sonic art form. The current pinnacle of the Garifuna music scene, Martinez is known for his innate ability to respectably honor the genre’s extensive lineage while subtly innovating it with every new song.
