Uploaded on Oct 11, 2008
A mongolian orchestra “Hosoo Transmongolia” gives a concert in St. Jacobs Church in Copenhagen, Denmark.
They play traditional Mongolian folkmusic
and they use a very speciel songtechnique, “Mongolian höömii”. It is a kind of “throat song” where overtones appear and become the main sound in song. The orchestra uses traditional instruments, morin khuur (horsehead fiddle),ikh khuur (horse head bass), ever buree (oboe) and traditional drum.
The songs are from different parts of mongolia. Many of the songs are about horses and the life on the mongolian steppe, and some songs are shaman songs.
