Yie Er Bo Li, ethnically Kazakh, was originally from Xinjiang, China.He was born in 1981 at the city of Altai.He started studying the Dombra, a traditional Kazakh instrument, at the age of 5. When he was 17, he joined the Xinjiang Ili Song and Dance Troupe as a professional Dombra player. He started writing his
own compositions at the young age of 19.
2006年，叶尔波利重组了自己的乐队，成员包括打击乐手小宇、贝司手廖凯以及鼓手文烽。乐队创作了一些自己的作品，并重新改编了大量哈萨克族民歌；现已出版第一张世界融合乐(WORLD FUSION)专辑《哈萨克精神Kazakh Spirit》。
In 2006, Ye Er Bo Li formed his own band, members included percussionist Xiao Yu, bassist Liao Kai, and drummer Wen Feng. The band composed several original compositions, as well as rearranging and reinterpreting many traditional Kazakh folk songs. The band has just released their first album "Kazakh Spirit" earlier this year, categorized under World Fusion.
Ye Er Bo Li has also ventured out into the world of improvised experimental music. So far, he has performed and collaborated with a cast of international artists, and local artists as well. Ye Er Bo Li and band has performed in several large music festivals, including:"Back to Earth - 2006 Chinese Folk Music Festival," "2006 Lian Zhou International Photography Festival," "Northern Europe Music Festival
(both 2006 and 2007, at Xing Hai Music Lounge)," "2008 German Culture Year Music Festival," "2008 Taiwan Migration Music Festival," "2009 Taiwan Bitan Music Festival," "2009 Vienna Riddu Riddu Music Festival."'2010 Rainforest music festival"
Even though Ye Er Bo Li constantly craves the vast grass fields of home, but right now, he can only sing his nomadic songs in the boundaries of a city. His music is full of longing for his birth place, and his anxiety and contemplations toward the modern life. He
is searching for his own unique musical direction at this junction of past and future, tradition and modern.
There is an old saying in Kazakh, "songs and horses are the two wings of Kazakh." Ye Er Bo Li hope to use the Dombra in hand and his melancholy melodies to spread Kazahk culture to every corner of the world.
Released June, 2008: Kazakh Spirit.1.
