Details | GeregGereg, the silver ID plate from the times of Genghis Khan gave the title to this CD. If the Gereg was the passport of the nomads, their ID, this album is a musical identification of Mongolia, a poetic passport of Egschiglen. Their Gereg contains everything from the past like new writing on a palimpsest so that the past becomes contemporary and the regional becomes universal. The CD has been selected by songlines magazines as one of the 'Top of the world' albums for the April/May edition 2008.

Details | ZazalMagnificant lucidity – 'Zazal' is the fruit of years of research and travel between the conservatory of Ulaan Baatar, capital of Mongolia, and Rötenbach a. d. Pegnitz, a small village in Bavaria, Germany. This CD is a walk through the labyrinth of vocal acrobatics: the diphonic khöömii – the epic singing khailakh, or the melodic duulakh. Egschiglen's compositions and arrangements reflect a fluent transformation of their native songs into magnificant contemporary music. '...folk music at it’s best' (Jazzzeit/AUS)

Details | Sounds of MongoliaThis album is made of traditional and contemporary Mongolian music, played on traditional instruments: morin khuur (horsehead-violin), ih khuur (bass), joochin (dulcimer), tobshuur (swan-neck-lute) and percussion. Occasionally one may imagine hearing the hoof beat of the small, tough Mongolian horses on whose backs Ghengis Khan had founded the largest world empire of all times. Other pieces will lead you into the clear silence of the Gobi desert, where you can hear the wind singing in the dunes.

Details | GobiIt's time for a walk through the labyrinth of vocal acrobatics: the diaphonic - the epic singing, or the melodic. 'Gobi' contains a selection of both, traditional songs and pieces of contemporary Mongolian composers. With their fine-tuned arrangements, Egschiglen’s pieces often have chamber-music quality and transparency - without loosing the orginal enchanting power of a strong tradition.
'A CD that deserves a deeper listening.' (Tad Magazine/F)
