Album Notes
Northern Lights - Altai Khangai
Canada – Mongolia Jazz Fusion

A musical collaboration blending the sounds of the Mongolian steppe and jazz of the Canadian prairies.

Northern Lights is a collective comprised of some of Calgary’s most popular freelance musicians performing a mixture of traditional and contemporary jazz styles. Northern Lights has evolved from a number of ensembles that have consistently worked toward the development of spacious and interactive music which evokes the expansiveness of the Canadian prairies.

Altai-Khangai performs traditional music from the steppes of Mongolia. The morin khuur (horse head fiddle), khuchuur and khoomii (throat singing) evoke the grasslands, deserts, mountains, horses and nomadic people of Mongolia, the land that knows no fences.

The music selected for this collaboration introduces these separate traditions and moves forward together, blending jazz into traditional Mongolian music and the sounds of Mongolian music into jazz. In the collaborative pieces the musical traditions both echo and compliment each other, and as Mongolian musicians add improvisation, a new sound emerges that is a celebration of both traditions and a symbol of evolving together in a partnership of co-creation.
