THEY are musicians from a remote part of the world who describe themselves as “music gatherers.”

Which is just one of the reasons why a concert at the Square Chapel in Halifax sounds likely to offer an extraordinary evening of music.

Anda Union is a Mongolian music troupe made up of 14 instrumentalists and vocalists.

All have trained from a young age in traditional Mongolian music and bring their distinctive sound to Halifax on Saturday, February 2, at 7.30pm.

The ensemble say they find their inspiration in old and forgotten songs and in unearthing beautiful bygone sounds.

The band formed 12 years ago and most of its members have been playing together since childhood and as adults studied music together.

This is a rare visit to the UK and the only opportunity to hear them in Yorkshire.

The group are known for their expertise in the art of throat singing. A seemingly magical technique where the singer seems to simultaneously create two notes at the same time.

Tickets are £11 & £9 in advance and £12 & £10 on the day, available from Square Chapel’s Box Office on 01422 349422 or online at
