Egschiglen (beautiful melody) was founded in Ulaan Baatar, the capital of Mongolia, and since 1991 the musicians regularly erected their traditional yurts in Röthenbach a. d. Pegnitz, a small village in Germany, to be nearer to European concert halls.
This album is a collection of pure traditional musics from Mongolia presented in fine tuned arrangements. With their virtuosity Egschiglen musically transmit the harmony of their culture and show an impressive variety and delicacy of expression.
One one hand Mongolian sounds seems strange and mysterious to western ears. On the other hand the music sounds familiar, by expressing basic human feelings : love longing, sorrow and thankfulness.
