Mongolia's HAYA to make US debut at IUP in 2018.

The Mongolian music group Haya (Хаяа), will make its US debut in April 2018 at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. A profile of the April 5, 2018 "Migrations" concert, from its management company:
“Migration” is about searching for one’s own spiritual home, experiencing the beauty of life itself, and returning to a simplistic, survivalist lifestyle. HAYA Band’s “Migration” Concert employs innovative musical language alongside classic traditional songs, fusing a variety of musical elements such as chants, the Mongolian horsehead fiddle, plucked string instruments, throat singing, and shaman drums. Their music is refined and captivating. Their shows have a distinct “ceremonious” feel. Migration provides us with a path for escape from this fast-paced modern world, a contemporary migration to another realm, one surrounded by the wonders of nature and life.
Single tickets will be available online starting August 29. IUP is located roughly 60 miles east of Pittsburgh, and the concert will be held in the Fisher Auditorium of the IUP Performing Arts Center from 8:00 pm on April 5.
