2022 Sound of Dragon Music Festival
Katajjaq meets Khoomei - Inuit & Mongolian throat singing with Asian instruments and beyond
presented by the Sound of Dragon Society, in collaboration with the Caravan World Rhythms

Two Concerts

1) KATAJJAQ meets KHOOMEI (Inuit & Mongolian throat singing), featuring Okto├ęcho (Montreal) & Orchid Ensemble (Vancouver) & Anand Avirmed (Mongolia)
8pm Friday June 24, 2022
Annex, 823 Seymour Street, Vancouver

Katajjaq (Inuit throat singing) and Khoomei (Mongolian throat singing) meet in the collaboration between Orchid Ensemble (Vancouver) and Oktoecho (Montreal). Katajjaq and Khoomei are both ancestral songs that reproduce the sounds in the nature, such as water flow, wind, echoes in the mountains, and sounds of animals and birds. Coincidentally, these are also the major themes in traditional Chinese music. In addition, the two ensembles offer unique cross-cultural instrumentations. This project is a hybrid creation that crosses over Inuit, Mongolian, Chinese, Japanese, European, and Arabic music.

co-presented with the Orchid Ensemble, with additional support from the BC Arts Council
