Synthesis CD from Ajinai
Synthesis is the second studio album from Ajinai, a Beijing-based folk rock group with members hailing from Inner Mongolia. While the instrumentation of traditional Mongolian music plays a huge role in their sound, at their heart they are musical innovators, eager to absorb influences from all genres and "synthesize" them into their unique original compositions. With Ajinai, you are not walking into a hushed museum of bygone sounds, but a challenging new sonic landscape that is neither modern nor traditional. It is a place where these forces interact, clash, and complement each other in unexpected ways. 10 tracks. Available for download only.
