Anand Avirmed  khoomei & morin khuur (Mongolian throat singing & horsehead fiddle)

Khoomei throat singing techniques reproduce sounds heard in nature   water flowing, the wind blowing, echoes in mountains, the calls of animals. Traditionally used in shamanic ceremonies, it is performed at festive events. Anand Avirmed masters this ancient fascinating vocal skill and also performs on the haunting horsehead fiddle of Mongolia.

Anand Avirmed is a 23 year old Mongolian musician who was born in Washington DC. Since his youth, Anand has been performing Mongolian traditional folk music at numerous cultural events, be it Mongolian or International. As he grew up in age, so did his desire for a broader musical knowledge and understanding of all Mongolic cultures, from the Kalmyks in the West, to the Yakuts in the North, and all in between, strengthening his knowledge, and understanding of his grand heritage and all cousin folk. Anand is skilled in five different forms of throat singing (Khoomei). In addition, he performs on a wide range of musical instruments from Mongolia, Central Asia, and the west, including morin khuur, tovshuur, doshpoluur, igil, guitar, jaw harp, piano, and bass guitar. Through a wide itinerary of performing exotic folk music, to underground garage Indie rock, Anand in his young and coming career has seen more than his fair share in performing a vast variety of music. Previous performances included his own solo concerts in the Washington DC area, numerous cultural events, and with the Anura music ensemble under his Morin Khuur teacher Urlagbaatariin Khatanbold for the past 10 years. Anand looks forward to the coming years of travel and music, and constantly learning all he can from other musicians around him!
