The Mongols who have been living in their homeland in Central Asian plateau since far prehistoric times used shamanic calls in their belief and worship of Father Tengri (Welkin) and the Mother Earth, which was the origin of Mongolian folk long song. Mongolian long song, as a melodious means for communication between human and nature offering, has been developed to perfection along the progressive process  of the nomadic civilization, turning into the classical form of vocal arts and an intangible cultural heritage of the Mongols.
We've launched it for You to introduce the diversity of Mongolian long song since the wide range of distinct styles and schools of it face a risk of extinction due to lack of awareness. 

Welcome and enjoy the brief introduction to Mongolian Long Song, its diverse local styles and school as well as the ritual long songs. We hope You will enjoy it!
