Mongolian MorinKhuur Ensemble Concert

The three creative jewels of Mongolian pastoral nomads are the rising and falling melody of Urtiin Duu (long song), the deep and potent sound of Morin Khuur (horse head fiddle), and the exquisite and spectacular singing of Khoomei (throat singing). The harsh beauty of Mongolia's vast rural landscapes is eloquently captured in them, as is the ethnic character that defines them. With their captivating voices and melodies, the outstanding Morin Khuur Ensemble of Mongolia will transport the listener to the vast and breathtaking Mongolian Plateau as they perform real Mongolian traditional music.
