Traditional Mongolian Music + Rock

I wondered how long it'll be before someone came along with something like this. Well, it's not quite the fusion of Mongolian traditional music and Rock the way "Yat-Kha" is fusing rock and traditional Tuvan music, which is probably identical to Mongolian music except for the language. (The Tuvanese speak a Turkic language. We speak Mongolian).

Click to watch this clip posted by a traveller of a Mongolian traditional band with some progressive sound. It's short, but it gets better and better on repeat. I keep imagining some Metallica songs being played out on these instruments.
