The U.S. Embassy is bringing another group of American musicians to Ulaanbaatar as part of the Arts Envoy Program. The Chicago-based orchestral pop group Canasta will be in Mongolia for a little over a week, sharing their sound in UB and the nearby city of Dalanzadgad.
I’m hoping to find a time during their busy week for an interview. After seeing only Mongolian music for several months now, it will be interesting to attend an American concert once again. And, I’m looking forward to hearing their thoughts on Mongolia and the music here.
For those of you who are in UB. You can see them perform next Friday (2/10) at The Children’s Recreation Center near Metromall.
Read an interview with the band about their trip here.
