Nada in Mongolia tour dates diary 2

 

Ulaanbaatar, Tov Aimag 1/9‑6/9/94

 

NADA played five concerts at the former youth and culture centre, now called the "Rainbow club". NADA were part of a nightly package that  contained a String quartet, a traditional Mongolian ensemble, NADA and a Mongolian rock band Hurd. The audience was varied and appreciated  the variety the NADA gave. It was a most bizarre venue to start our tour. The organisers asked us if we played rock/pop music? We duly said no and proceeded to play a set that consisted of some traditional Mongolian melodies sung in my slowly improving khöömii, a walk on procession song of Sianed’s, live electronics and Didgeridoo and “Wade in the water”. We added songs like Vivs arrangement  of a Turkish song Esmerim and one of mine called “Between Twilights”.

 

Kharahorin, Ovorkhangai Aimag  9/9/94

 

Kharahorin is the ancient capital of Mongolia and about a days

drive from Ulaanbaatar. On the way we stopped at some Guanzs  

(road side café’s) and at some local Ger’s (Round white felt tents) where Gereltsogt stocked up on his supply of “Shimmy” airag (distilled fermented mare’s milk). Within the run down modern Town of Kharakhorin is Erdene Zuu, the ancient Monastic centre of Lamaist Buddhism (the temples somehow survived being destroyed in the1930's). NADA performed at a guest lodge by the Orhon river.

 

That day his Holiness the Dalai Lama visited Kharahorin for the  first time ever. NADA and the film crew had the honour and privilege of witnessing him give teachings to the Mongolian people present. They were dressed to the nines in their best Deels. Later on we performed an intimate concert at the ger Camp just by the banks of the Orkhon where we played for some visiting tourists and the local camp site employees.
