Tengger Cavalry release video for ‘kAAn’

By on 12 January 2017

Tengger Cavalry have released a video for the title track, “kAAn”, which puts oppression of nomadic cultures under the spotlight. Much like USA’s own Native American community, who are suffering from governmental and corporate oppression (i.e. Standing Rock), nomadic Mongolians have found their culture threatened by surrounding forces for generations. As brothers in nomadic culture, Tengger Cavalry penned “kAAn” as a beacon of support.

Nature Ganganbaigal comments:

“This century is the century of machine and industry. Nomadic culture is falling apart everywhere around the world. Grasslands and plains are being exploited and it is becoming more acceptable to step into the sacred land of others and get what we need in the moment. We all saw what happened at Standing Rock. As distantly related brothers of Native Americans (proven genetically), Tengger Cavalry, an international alliance of Mongols, Central Asians and Northern Asians, felt the need to give our public support to them. This video is about the brotherhood of nomadic people. It doesn’t matter what ethnicity you are – if you have a nomadic heart and you love nature and sky, you are one of us, and we will support you!”

Tengger Cavalry are:

Nature Ganganbaigal (throat singing & guitar)
Alex Abayev (bass)
Josh Schifris (drum)
Uljmuren De (Mongolian fiddle)
Robert McLaughlin (fiddle)
