Ulaanbaatar or Ulan Bator/ˌuːlɑːnˈbɑːtər/ (Mongolian:Улаанбаатар, [ʊɮɑːŋ.bɑːtʰɑ̆r], Ulaγanbaγatur, literally "Red Hero") is the capital and the largest city of Mongolia. A federal municipality, the city is not part of any aimag (province), and its population as of 2014 was over 1.3 million.
Located in north central Mongolia, the city lies at an elevation of about 1,310 metres (4,300ft) in a valley on the Tuul River. It is the cultural, industrial and financial heart of the country, the centre of Mongolia's road network and connected by rail to both the Trans-Siberian Railway in Russia and the Chinese railway system.
The city was founded in 1639 as a movable (nomadic) Buddhistmonastic centre. In 1778, it settled permanently at its present location, the junction of the Tuul and Selbe rivers. Before that, it changed location twenty-eight times, with each location being chosen ceremonially. In the twentieth century, Ulaanbaatar grew into a major manufacturing centre.
Amaury Cambuzat (vocals, guitar) and Olivier Manchion (bass) began to play together in 1987. While in Paris in 1993, they formed Ulan Bator with drummer Franck Lantignac. They built a recording studio in an unused chalk mine and recorded their first three albums there: "Ulan Bator", "2 Degrees", and "Vegetale". In 1996 they began a long relationship with krautrock band Faust during a French tour. The first meeting of Zappi W. Diermaier and Jean-Hervé Péron (of Faust) and Olivier Manchion and Amaury Cambuzat (of Ulan Bator) was recently released as Collectif Metz/Faust. Ulan Bator performed in prestigious festivals such as Les Transmusicales de Rennes, Roskilde. Their albums "Polaire"and "Vegetale" plus multiple live recordings were released in Italy by CPI. Afterwards, they signed to Sonica. In 1999, Ulan Bator recorded its Ego:Echo (Young God Records), produced by Michael Gira (Swans, The Angels of Light) together with drummer Matteo Dainese. Later in 2002 they released "OK:KO" from the Ego:Echo tours and demo sessions.
