The Power Center for the Performing Arts, 121 Fletcher St, Ann Arbor

A crossover band that blends traditional music and rock, Hanggai is giving a 90-minute concert at the Power Center in Ann Arbor. Hanggai, formed in 2004, has emerged on the international stage as one of the most exciting touring bands from China. They have performed at The Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center among other prestigious venues. Hanggai’s live show is known for their ability to demonstrate rock qualities and to cross over from a traditional sound to a new sound which is a more complex blend of Mongolian musical sound with modern rock overtones. They perform Mongolian folk music with traditional and western instruments combined with raspy deep throat singing and a loosely rock based structure, creating modern Mongolian folk rock music.
