Win a Date Night at the Chan Centre with Anda Union & Dinner at Sage

Comments 54 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Renowned folk group Anda Union will captivate Canadian audiences for the first time at the Chan Centre on March 26th, with their stirring, mystical sounds from Inner Mongolia. Playing rare traditional instruments, including the horse head fiddle and the two-string lute, the nine-member group blends haunting throat singing and stunning harmonies to conjure visions of Inner Mongolia’s remote regions.

Anda Union at the Chan Centre

Where: Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (at UBC, 6265 Crescent Rd, Vancouver)
When: Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 8:00pm
Tickets: Available online now from $38, in person at the box office, or by calling (604) 822-2697.

Described by The Guardian as “stirring and sophisticated”, Anda Union are a band of artists brought together by a passion for preserving the forgotten sounds of their Mongolian heritage. The members, who consider themselves musical gatherers, come from different tribes united by the legendary Genghis Khan, and blend the styles and influences of their respective lineages. The result is a singular collective sound from the Mongol tradition.

Through a combination of ethereal melodies, soaring vocals, reverberating throat singing, and heart-pounding rhythms, Anda Union evoke the natural wonders of their rustic homeland.

Anda Union rose to international fame with the release of their first album, The Wind Horse (2011), and have since headlined world music and mainstream festivals. The momentum surrounding this exceptional group continues to build.

For their second album, Homeland, Anda Union worked with 14-time GRAMMY-winning producer Richard King, whose credits include Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road, The Goat Rodeo Sessions, and the film soundtrack Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Recently, Homeland was selected as one of the ‘Best Albums of 2016’ by Songlines Magazine.

As a special treat, the Chan Centre will host a free workshop with the group for all ages that includes a throat singing demonstration and lesson opportunity Sunday, March 26, 2017, 11:00am at MBA House, 3385 Wesbrook Mall, UBC. Follow the Chan Centre on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about performances this season.
