Biography

Hailing from the grasslands of Western China, Mamer is a legendary figure from China’s underground music scene.

Described as the ‘Lou Reed of the grasslands’, Mamer’s music combines traditional Kazakh folk melodies and instruments with Western and traditional Chinese instruments.

Mamer’s band ‘IZ’ is credited with single-handedly kickstarting China’s alt-country scene and has influenced a huge range of acts including Mongol-crossover pioneers, Hanggai.

‘Eagle’ is Mamer’s first solo album.

Recorded in Beijing and Urumqi (Western China), ‘Eagle’ is aimed at a broad international audience and features collaborations with UK-based producers Robin Haller and Matteo Scumaci, a duet with admirer and banjo legend Bela Fleck (track 4), and a remix by the late, great French musician Hector Zazou.

Mamer will be touring the US and Europe in 2009.

‘Eagle’ is scheduled for release in Spring ‘09.
