COUNTRY: China (Mongolia)

LANGUAGE: Mongolian

“Xiger” is, like so many songs from Mongolia, a reverent song about horses. “The majestic bay trots along quickly…Tovor tovor tovor tovor he sounds…Eight strands of beads on his brow going…
Shiger shiger shiger shiger they sound…”

“Xiger” is a song by Hanggai, a Mongolia-originated, Beijing-based band from China that fuses forging rural Inner Mongolian sounds with rock and punk in a style known as “Chinagrass.”
