Hegjiltu, Hangai co-founder and band leader of Ajinai

Hailing from Inner Mongolia's ZaLute prairie, Hugejiletu is one of China's most well-known representatives of Mongolian music traditions. Deeply influenced by his father, a highly-respected musician, he initially learned a traditional storytelling form of playing music, before picking up the horse-head fiddle and started learning throat singing. In 2005, Hugejiletu co-founded the influential Mongolian-folk-rock band Hanggai, performing and composing with the group until 2009 where he started his own project Ajinai. Apart from being a part of Ajinai, Hugejiletu also performs and tours with avant-folk group Dawanggang, whilst also garnering an impressive reputation as a solo artist.
