morin khuur

Mongolian music is world-class.  Unlike much of the rest of Asia, it isn’t tacky or boring (though modern Mongolian pop can be hit-or-miss). But the traditional music is evocative and beautiful, reminiscent of the open steppe.  My favorite instrument (in an almost cliche way) is the morin khuur.   I haven’t yet seen them, but the Morin Khuur Ensemble is supposed to be one of the best live performances in town.

A peek.
