She learned the mongolian traditional singing technique “Long song”, (declared Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO) and in which she won her first national medal at an exceptional age of 8 years old. In 2002 she finished her studies at the Mongolian State University of Art and Culture.
One year later she went on a tour in France and Belgium with “Khan Bogd” ensemble. In 2006 she toured with them again in Luxembourg and 2011 with “Hosoo and Transmongolia” in Ghent and Antwerp, where she now resides. Bolor sang an ancient song named “Zeergentiin shil”, which tells a story about a rider who lost his two horses. The plentiful vibration of her voice represents the breathtaking mongolian culture, revived by Fabulae Dramatis.

Nick G. Coward is a freelance musician born and raised in North London, England. He was introduced to music at very young age. His mother and grandfather were keen musicians. Consequently, music reverberated daily all around the house, thus becoming the predominant influence in his life.
Nick’s first love was the bass guitar. When he was 16 years old, he played bass and did backing vocals in a local rock band, covering songs from “Free” and “Deep Purple”. The band developed into “False Prophet”, playing original progressive Rock music. He improved his abilities over time and became the main singer, lyricist and vocal lines composer. On the recent “False Prophet” album entitled “Finally” you can listen to his operatic, soaring vocals.
More recently, in between projects, Nick has written a lot of his own material on acoustic guitar and has an albums worth of songs ready to be recorded. He is also making an A-capella album, using only his vocal assets, with six part vocal harmonies as his musical instruments.
Nick loves a wide range of musical genres and currently focuses mainly on his vocal skills. Other interests are fine portrait drawing and martial arts.
“Vigil” is the track where Nick’s voice appears, enriching the song with a third tessiture and keeping a clean atmosphere during the piece. Nick recorded his vocal contribution in Wasaw, Poland, which is now his main residence. His collaboration has been an interesting experience.
