The brightest star in Mongolian throat singing.

Batzorig Vaanchig is one of the world-leading khoomei musicians, and possibly the most well known throat singer in the world right now. He grew up in the Bayankhongor Province in Mongolia, and began to learn throat singing from his mother at a young age, and eventually he picked up the traditional horse-head fiddle, the morin khuur. He studied music at the Institute of Culture in Ulaanbaatar, and set out to be a professional musician.

His success since then has been unprecedented. As part of the band Khusugtun, he was runners-up on Asia’s got Talent in 2015. Right around the same time, he became known all over the internet through a series of memes known as Mongolian Throat Singing, which portrayed the musical tradition as the ultimate, most enjoyable form of music. Vaanchig viewed it as a welcome opportunity to spread knowledge about Mongolian music to music lovers, and has since grown his global fan base through concerts and online presence. And the thing is, the meme was onto something - to hear Vaanchigs performances and the way he utilizes the human voice, really is not like any other form of singing. The way it combines with the morin khuur, can be both hauntingly beautiful and awe-inspiring. Instantly recognizable, and still unlike anything you’ve ever heard.
