Ts Bayandalai

Mongolian grasslands and the shaman gods.

Long-standing Xinjiang-raised Mongolian musician Bayan Dalai, known for his imposing presence and voice in Mongolian grassland troupe Horse Radio and the more experimental avant-garde experimental folk duo december3am, emerges triumphant on his bewitching solo debut – “Kimel”.

Tracing the artist’s bond with the grasslands and the shaman gods that occupy them, there’s a quiet beauty to the atmosphere Bayan Dalai is able to conjure here, exploring the outer edges of his ancestors’ music and finding solace in every word, every guitar chord, and the spaces that fill the void in between.
