The members of AnDa Union are young musicians who find inspiration in the old (and in some cases largely forgotten) songs that reflect the different traditions and languages of the people of Inner and Outer Mongolia.

It’s a culture that, for many Californians, is still pretty exotic. They perform on indigenous instruments like the morin huur (horse-head fiddle), maodun chaoer (a three-holed flute) and Mongolian versions of the lute and mouth harp.

The group’s members — with names like Biligbaatar, Chinggel, Urgen, Tsetsegmaa, Otgonbayar and Saikhannakhaa — come from families that were traditionally herders but have more recently settled in towns and cities. They come from varying ethnic backgrounds, and bring those diverse influences to the group’s music.

AnDa Union will perform at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Jackson Hall at the Mondavi Center. Tickets start at $25, and are available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
