Inga

Inga Ingrid is a morin-khuur graduate of Ulan-Ude Music College named after Tchaikovsky, nominee for the project of experimental ethnic music and dance “Stereotypes of the Future” (Moscow). Several years ago, she heard archival recordings of the performers of the Buryat folk song. They were made back in the 50s of the last century, and the works themselves belonged to the pre-revolutionary time. It was bitter for the girl to realize that these songs live only on records: no one sings them now, but only a few are listening. For three years she carefully studied these recordings, worked on the idea, restored the texts and imagined how the project should sound. From a listener to a Buryat folk song, she turned into a performer –  she found her own style and sound image, bought a bass guitar and learned to play it, and most importantly, she found her own vocal “toolbox”. “I like and want to experiment with ethnic music. First of all, this is the music of my ancestors. Ethnic music carries a certain cultural code that we still need today. I would like to keep pace with the times, having with me the valuable baggage of the past”.
