Mongolian Songs Track listing (I have tried correcting some of it any help welcome)


Tracks 1 to 10 feature Ganbold’s fantastic Khöömii singing and is usually accompanied by the yoochin. The rest of the CD is dedicated to Norovbanzad’s amazing voice. She sings some stunning urtyn duu (long songs) accompanied by the morin khuur as well as some bogino duu (shorts songs) backed by a small ensemble.


1 Khöömii  Khöömii is a type of vocal technique in which one singer simultaneously producers two pitches. Five types of Khöömii are recorded here, nasal, oral, glottal, chest and throat Khöömii.
