Sounds from the Mongolian Steppe at China Institute

Sounds from the Mongolian Steppe at China Institute

On September 25, China Institute hosted the band SULD, hailing from Inner Mongolia, who treated our audience to Mongolian traditional music, its unique techniques and instruments including Khoomei (often referred to as “throat singing”) and Morin Khuur (the “horse-head fiddle”). Below, we present photos and the full event video from the talk and performance.

We recommend you take a few moments to appreciate and enjoy the distinctive sounds you won’t hear anywhere else in the world! We have linked to specific sections in the video to make this easier.
