Mongolia's Tengger Cavalry to perform at 29th annual Chinggis Khaan memorial ceremony in Princeton, NJ this Saturday, November 5th
Global Music Award-winning Nomadic Mongolian folk metal group Tengger Cavalry are thrilled to announce their upcoming acoustic performance at the 29th Annual Chinggis Khaan Memorial Ceremony, taking place in Princeton, NJ at the NJHA Conference and Event Centre this Saturday, November 5 at 1:00pm. The band's set will include new songs and fan favourites and will begin at 4:00pm.
The Chinggis Khaan Memorial Ceremony, which is presented by the Chinggis Khaan Memorial Foundation and Mongol American Cultural Association, is one of the biggest conferences dedicated to the legendary Mongolian ruler in the United States. The event will also include a Mongolian-American cuisine reception in honour of all of the day's musical performers. For more information, please visit the Mongol American Cultural Association website.
Tengger Cavalry frontman Nature Ganganbaigal states:-
"We are greatly honoured to perform at this event! The Chinggis Khaan Memorial Ceremony is a historical and academic event that has been held for 29 years state-side and people from all over the world gather together to celebrate the greatness of the Khaan. There are always traditional performances and literature readings, and even a shaman summoning ritual of Chinggis Khaan's spirit. To play at such event, alike no other commercial gig, is so meaningful to us on cultural and religious levels."
Global Music Award-winning Nomadic Mongolian folk metal group Tengger Cavalry recently reissued two of their earlier albums originally released in 2013 and 2014, re-composed and instrumented. 2013's The Expedition was reissued as Cavalry In Thousands, and 2014's Ancient Call was reissued as Hymn Of The Earth. Both albums are available via Bandcamp now.
Each reissue features brand new melody compositions, vocal lines and re-recorded guitars. Tengger Cavalry frontman Nature Ganganbaigal states,
"It has been years since I recorded the original versions of these reissue records. My life has changed a lot since then, and musically, I've changed too. I wanted to embrace more of the traditional music roots. I felt the original songs that I wrote years ago had the potential to be modified and improved, so I transformed the texture and melody, replacing death growling with throat singing, etc. The reissues represent the taste and status of this present moment of my life - my experiences, my emotions - bound with grassland."

Tengger Cavalry frontman Nature Ganganbaigal reflects on the performance's success:
"The concert was entirely sold out... lesson learned... next time we'll do this at a bigger venue! It was so fun to see both fine-suited grandpas and tattooed metalheads stand in the same line, everyone there to enjoy music together. We are so humbled to know that fans from as far as DC and even California flew here to see us. It was beyond all of our expectations. Thanks again to all of our fans and friends who came out to support Tengger Cavalry and our brand of music."
Nature Ganganbaigal and Tengger Cavalry have been turning heads in the music world since the band's inception in 2010. In 2014, Ganganbaigal released his Mongolian New Age album To Where Tengger Leads Me. The album won a bronze medal from Global Music Awards and a nomination from Hollywood Music in Media Awards. In 2015, Nature moved to New York City from China and re-located the band with brand new American members. This past spring, the band released a new album, "Blood Sacrifice Shaman", out via Metal Hell Records and available for streaming here.
Tengger Cavalry blends the nomadic music tradition of Central Asia with heavy metal music, creating the unique music genre mentioned above, Mongolian folk metal. Nature Ganganbaigal performs multiple Mongolian nomadic instruments including Mongolian horse-head fiddle Morin Khuur, Mongolian flute, Tibetan horn, Mongolian guitar (Tovshuur) and other instruments native to the region. He is also able to sing using the ancient Mongolian singing tradition of Khoomei, also known as throat singing or overtone singing. After the release of four studio albums in Europe and United States, Tengger Cavalry has become known as one of the most unique, innovative and exciting metal bands in Asia.
