Haranga (Mongolian: Харанга, gong) is a hard rock/progressive rock band from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, established in 1989 as the first Mongolian hard rock group.[1] It has been performing in Mongolia since the early 1990s. In 1997, the group recorded two CDs in Germany, sponsored by Daimler-Chrysler and Siemens Nixdorf.[citation needed]


In the 1990s their "Shuuder tsetseg", and "Uguilen sanana" became hits. And title name of "Only in Mongolia" became a popular quote in everyday life of Mongolia. They participated in Mongolian National TV's New Year's program "Tsenkher Delgets".
