2006, the HAYA Band is an award-winning world music collective representing a
new era in folk music. With a solid understanding of both modern and
traditional Mongolian music combined with their passion for nature, the HAYA: Migration Concert is richly rooted in
the musical heritage of Mongolia, all the while celebrating modern musical
HAYA—Mongolian for “border”—employs innovative musical language alongside
traditional song to refresh centuries-old rhythm with modern vibrant
heartbeats. Using such elements as chants, the Mongolian horsehead fiddle,
plucked string instruments, throat singing, and shaman drums, HAYA Band provides
a path for an escape from a fast-paced modern world… a contemporary migration,
of sorts… to another realm, one surrounded by the wonders of nature and life.
the pioneer of Mongolian crossover music, HAYA Band’s music is refined and
captivating, and their shows have a distinct ceremonious feel. They have
won many accolades, including the Chinese Media Award, the China Music Award
for Best World Music Performance, and the Taiwan Golden Melody Award for Best
Crossover Music on two occasions. Their Silent Skies album is the
best-selling soul/world music album of all time in Taiwan.
