This winter marks another celebration for TENGGER CAVALRY – as our country battles the topic of immigration, frontman Nature Ganganbaigal has been officially approved for his green card, allowing TENGGER CAVALRY to continue their groundbreaking performances in the United States. “I am excited to announce that my green card application for Extraordinary Ability just got approved by USCIS. This is amazing, because my application title is literally “Mongolian Folk Heavy Metal Musician”. This will be very beneficial to the band, and perhaps the genre, as I could continue developing our career stateside and do more US and EU tours in the future,” states Ganganbaigal.

Nature Ganganbaigal and TENGGER CAVALRY have been turning heads in the music world since the band’s inception in 2010. In 2014, Ganganbaigal released his Mongolian New Age album To Where Tengger Leads Me. The album won a bronze medal from Global Music Awards and a nomination from Hollywood Music in Media Awards. In 2015, Nature moved to New York City from China and re-located the band with brand new American members. This past spring, the band released a new album, Blood Sacrifice Shaman, out via Metal Hell Records and available for streaming here.

TENGGER CAVALRY blends the nomadic music tradition of Central Asia with heavy metal music, creating the unique music genre mentioned above, Mongolian folk metal. Nature Ganganbaigal performs multiple Mongolian nomadic instruments including Mongolian horse-head fiddle Morin Khuur, Mongolian flute, Tibetan horn, Mongolian guitar (Tovshuur) and other instruments native to the region. He is also able to sing using the ancient Mongolian singing tradition of Khoomei, also known as throat singing or overtone singing. After the release of four studio albums in Europe and United States, TENGGER CAVALRY has become known as one of the most unique, innovative and exciting metal bands in Asia.
