About: Equus - Tailwind Home album cover
Equus is a gathering of 4 musicians of very diverse musical and cultural backgrounds. Equus' performs original contemporary folk and fusion pieces as well as the traditional music of Mongolia, and Asia Minor, sung by world renowned Mongolian throat singer Bukhu Ganburged(Voice, Morin Khuur), and fused with Middle Eastern strings and a dynamic rhythm section, with a strong component of improvisation making each performance a new experience. The result is often hard to define, but always spectacular and unique.

Joined by well known Australian musicians John Robinson (Oud, Turkish Baglama, guitar) Peter Kennard (Percussion), and Double bassist Bertie McMahon.

Equus is a bold, imaginative music project that succeeds in the formation of an entirely new sound.

These are the traditional songs of Mongolia played as you have never heard them before. Described as “.... pure musical pleasure, exciting, fun and challenging, all at once" Music Forum Magazine

How does music like this emerge from Australia? To appreciate that you will need to accept that Australia today is a vastly different experience to the cliches of crocodiles and "larrikins" holding court in outback bars. Of course, they are still there if you need to find them, but here in the Eurasian metropolis of Sydney something altogether different is afoot.

Authentic voices are in deep conversation - moving together to a new space - Khoomei (Harmonic throat singing) meets Taksim - set upon a trance groove. Morin Khuur (Mongolian Horse Head Fiddle) meets Oud and Saz (Middle Eastern lutes) -

The ancient connections between the two worlds of Mongolia and the Middle East are renewed and reborn under the southern sun.
