Ulan Bator
Apocalyptic folk, Cursed Poet, French AvantRock, Post-Rock, Psychedelic music from France.

Amaury Cambuzat is a french multi-instrumentalist and composer which began his long career in Paris (France) in 1994.
According to Alternative Press Magazine, reviewing in 1996 Ulan Bator « 2 degrees » EP, he is one of the pioneer of European AvantRock.
with Ulan Bator, Amaury recorded ten studio albums. One of those albums EGO:ECHO was produced by Michael Gira from The Swans and released on Compact-disc during year 2000 on his own label Young God Records.
Ulan Bator is now signed on German bureau b’s label, distributed by Forced Exposure in the USA. Their 10th LP « Stereolith » came out last year (March 2017).
Amaury is also a member of the creators of krautrock German’s faUSt since 2005.
This is the second time he will be touring the United States as Ulan Bator. Last time was in 2012 for it’s « En France / En Trance » release. 15 gigs in 15 days in 15 different states… Welcome back!
This time and for the US tour only, he decided to perform mainly and in semi-acoustic version (electro acoustic with a Lap-steel guitar and effects), his masterpiece « Ego:Echo » plus some more pieces that characterize his long career.

Ulan Bator will be Amaury Cambuzat on vocals and guitar, Chandra Shukla on bass, and Phil Puleo of Swans/Cop Shoot Cop on drums.

Michael Gira (The Swans): “One of the best french band in the last 300 years!”

Wire Magazine (UK): “Ulan Bator’s music follows an eccentric orbit, while their power is usually kept simmering in reserve. The players investigate the borders of song structure.They build up enormous tension (…) they played a marathon three hour set with Faust early last year. Hard to imagine, given Ulan Bator’s inherent sense of control: halting on the
brink before complete freakout sets in is what makes the group so special”

Alternative Press (USA): “To say that this is the best rock music France has ever produced is to damn it with faint praise. This trio may be the only band from that oversauced nation to be worth a damn in a long time maybe since Metal Urbain or Magma (…) Call it musique concrete paved with irreverence.”
Xambuca
XAMBUCA is a fictional group with no face or leader. Most of its product thus far is vapor, and will remain unavailable to the public. All accounts of its claimed existence is based on false sightings, rumors and here say. XAMBUCA does not really exist in the material space time continuum. Instead, XAMBUCA conceptually feeds on the subconscious figment of a host's imagination; a host that has a tendency to encounter its name or symbols in passing by mere coincidence. XAMBUCA owns an aspect of yourself as you have decided to be exposed to it and there is no turning back now.... you MUST watch and listen.
