The international music festival "The Voice of Nomads" has been annually held in Buryatia since 2009. The festival concept is based on the idea of ​​ethno-futurism, that is, a special approach to the ethnic diversity of culture, which looks into the future rather than the past.

In this context, the nomads are a symbol of dynamics, movement and freedom.

According to the organizers, the geography of the festival participants has been expanding every year. In the eight-year history of the festival it has attracted bands from Buryatia, Tuva, China, Mongolia, Ukraine, Hungary, Norway, USA, Japan, Belgium, Brazil, France, and so on.

The Voice of Nomads 2017: Music,  Freedom, and Love

Over its rich history, the festival, like a real nomad, has changed a number of locations, having visited all theatrical venues of the city of Ulan Ude. In 2016, the organizers decided that it was necessary for the festival development to go beyond the city and arrange an open-air in real steppe. Thus the Voice of Nomads moved to the tourist complex "Steppe Nomad", which is located in the Atsagat Village of Zaigraevsky District in the Republic of Buryatia.

This year the Voice of Nomads, has traditionally prepared a diverse line-up to please both fans of particular music genres, and admirers of authentic music traditions of various peoples, as well as those who love discovering new styles and, of course, connoisseurs of world music in its best manifestations.

Visitors will also listen to the rhythms of the Brazilian samba performed by the Casuarina band from Rio de Janeiro. Jambinai, a famous band from Seoul will introduce Korean post-rock to Buryat audience, and the band Magnolian from Mongolia will perform romantic indie rock. Specially for those who were stunned by the power of the Volga duet from Moscow last year, as well as those who missed the mesmerizing performance of Angela Manukyan, the band will perform at the festival for the second time.

The traditional block of Buryat musicians this time will be represented by rapper Khatkhur Zu, everyone’s favourite Badma-Handa, and “White Cloud” Namgar.
