[English Lyrics] Mongolian Song – Ode to Auspiciousness [Chinese CCTV Lunar New Year Gala 2011] 

Uploaded on Feb 6, 2011
Amazing! This song is sung by Anda Union (安达组合), the best Mongolian throat singing band in China. The music is written by Se Enkhbayar (色 恩克巴雅尔), one of the most well-known ethnic Mongolian Chinese musicians. The singers used two traditional Mongolian singing techniques in this song.

Mongolian Long Song Singing (or 长调) (see: 00:2300:37, 02:0502:22)
Mongolian Throat Singing (or Khoomii, 呼麦) (see: 00:4000:55, 01:0201:10, 02:2302:37)

English lyrics translated from Mongolian:
Auspicious and wish-fulfilled life blessed by skylights,
Splendid and gorgeous yurt roofs,
Doors and windows made by purple sandalwoods.
These are our homes.

Our sacrifice offered to the grand sky and earth.
Our worship paid to the sacred mountains and rivers.
Playing prolonged horse-fiddle tunes,
We sing melodious Mongolian Long Songs.

Let us sing and dance,
To extol our happy life.
Let us sing and dance,
To bless our eternal motherland.

Greetings Tran Quang Hai… from Sunny Brisbane !
I hope this finds you in good health & spirits ? It’s been many years since we met in Singapore where we were both running Overtone Singing Workshops at the World Choral Symposium ….
I’ve finally joined the OMN & would love to be connected with you . My apologies for taking SO LONG to join !! (You invited me to join when it first began …I’m a bit of a novice with computers !!) Thank you for all the good work you do in spreading & sharing overtone singing world wide.
Sonic Blessings, Sarah Hopkins

Really it was wonderful to meet you and I wish to meet you soon as possible. By the way maybe you have noticed the national flags in the top of each page?
