HAYA Band, the award-winning Chinese world music collective, is anything but traditional. The word "HAYA” means “margin” or “boundary” in Mongolian." According to an ancient legend, at the boundary of the endless sky, there is a gem called “HAYA” that holds the radiance of all living things. When one day people see it, all hatred will dissolve and love will abound throughout the entire world."

HAYA’s music tears away boundary's and ties that separate, and mixes traditional Mongolian music with innovative musical elements, permeating the new into the ancient melodies handed down for centuries, giving them contemporary vitality. The morin khuur (horse-head fiddle), tanbur, khoomei (throat singing), shaman drum, chanting – they are HAYA's gems

 

About The Show

HAYA: Migration Concert

Sunday, April 8 at 3:00PM

 

“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.

 

This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the North Carolina Arts Council as well as the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County.
