This is Long Overdue
I thought I’d quickly share a link to some Mongolian music this afternoon. The link below is to a traditional Mongolian “Long Song” where the lyrics are sung in a slow, drawn out fashion making for a fluid and dramatic sound. The singer is accompanied by the traditional Morin Khuur (horse-head fiddle), and to my ear, it’s absolutely gorgeous. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen music fit a culture and landscape as well as Mongolian music seems to. The song’s title is Tenger Ayalguu, which means “Sky Harmony” or “Sky Melody.”
All my best,
p.s. having trouble imbedding the video, so copy and past the link into your browser without the quote marks.
