Style and lyrical themes

The members are from Uvs aimag, situated in the west of Mongolia near the Altai Mountains. Thus, the songs are often a praise to the mountains, rivers and animals of western Mongolia.

The band performs either songs of their own composition or Mongolian traditional songs using morin khuur, topshur and a range of overtone singing techniques called Khöömii (Mongolian: Хөөмий).
