UZEMCHIN MELODY

The Uzemchin community has migrated from Inner Mongolia and resided in the vicinity of Shiliin Bogd Mountain in the territory of Sukhbaatar province of Mongolia in early and mid-20th century due to social causes. That's how their long song heritage arrived from the Inner Mongolian long song group and inhabited next to Dariganga melody and school.

It's worth to mention that their long song heritage is being degraded day by day. Indeed, the Uzemchin long song melody and school is considered to have reached a relatively higher level of development in comparison to many other Mongol ethnicities. For instance, the classical techniques of Mongolian long song such as 'dan (singular) 'shurankhai' (An octave leap to reach the highest pitch in falsetto), 'shirgeeh' (to end the pitch slowly), 'khutgakh', 'tsairuulakh', 'tsumrukh', 'khatgakh', ''tsoroilgokh', 'oilgokh', 'davkhiulakh', 'shurguulakh', and ''shuureh' can be heard from the proficiency and singing techniques of Uzemchin long song singers.
