A unique instrument

Mogolian Fiddle (morin khuur) is one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity identified by UNESCO. It dates from the Mongol empire of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.

Morin khuur melodies can be even used to tame animals. It is said to be used to encourage mother camel to adopt a new baby camel.

Owing to the simultaneous presence of a main tone and overtones, morin khuur music has always been difficult to transcribe using standard notation. It has been transmitted orally for many generations.
