Mongolian band, The HU, mix metal and traditional Mongolia folk

I love their song, Baba O’riley.
(You saw this coming, right?)

My favorite Yat-Kha song:

Karangailyg kara hovaa
O, dyngyl, dyngyldai
Karash kynnyk cheler dorug
O, dyngyl, dyngyldai
Karamainyng sai-la shazhyn
O, dyngyl, dyngyldai
Saglanadyr cheler dorug
O, dyngyl, dyngyldai

Chirgilchinnig chinge hovaa
O, dyngyl, dyngyldai
Chide duzhup cheler dorug
O, dyngyl, dyngyldai
Chinge kara sai-la chazhyn
O, dyngyl, dyngyldai
Chindingnedir cheler dorug
O, dyngyl, dyngyldai

The Endless Black Steppe (rough translation)

A black-brown runner horse runs like lightning through the endless black steppe
The black hair of a beautiful girl is moving in the wind

In the sunset light of the steppe, the black-brown running horse can run like lightning
The black hair of a beautiful girl, moving in the wind

Quite a bit of what they play is actually Mongolian poetry set to music. Much of “Wolf Totem” was written by Ghengis Khan. And yes, I own this CD and play it often. Love it lots!
