Mongolian Music

by Kara

I thought some of you might be interested in hearing some modern Mongolian music. Check out these bands!

This last group, Altan Urag, we saw perform while we were in UB. They combine elements of traditional Mongolian music, i.e. throat singing and the морин хуур (that's morin huur or the horse fiddle), with modern musical elements. The scenes from the video are from the movie Mongol; they did a lot of the soundtrack for that movie.
