Equus. There is new excitement in Australia's burgeoning world music patch! The buzz is all about the new band EQUUS, which is the Latin root of the word 'equine'. A gathering of 5 musicians of very diverse musical and cultural backgrounds, Equus' debut album Dakshin Khun (Southern Man) focuses on the traditional music of Mongolia, sung by world renowned Mongolian throat singer Bukhu, fused with Middle Eastern strings and wind and a dynamic rhythm section, with a strong component of improvisation to making each performance a new experience, the result is often hard to define, but always spectacular and unique. Joined by well known Blue Mountains musicians Andy Busutill (sax, middle eastern winds), John Robinson (oud, Turkish Baglama) and Peter Kennard (Percussion), as well as Double bass extraordinaire Bertie McMahon. This music is about meetings, of people and traditions, and of musics. EQUUS is a bold, imaginative music project that succeeds in the formation of an entirely new sound.
These are the traditional songs of Mongolia played as you have never heard them before. Described as "one of the most evocative albums I have heard ...This is pure musical pleasure, exciting, fun and challenging, all at once." Music Forum magazine.
