foreword of this blog

In this blog I would introduce the wonderful music made by Mongolic peoples (people in Mongolia, Inner Mongolia, Buryat, Kalmyk and other people involved with Mongols).Recent years I've got some CDs and LP records of Mongolian music. They include the recordings of orchestral works of Mongolian composers. Mongolian comtemporary music has hardly known in other countries. I want many people to know the works and also traditional music and popular music of Mongolic peoples. So I will upload the videos and audio files of them here.

Mongloian folk songs by purged musicians

These recordings were performed by a singer M.Dugarjav(1893-1946) and morin khuur(horse headed fiddle) player D.Tudev(1898-1938). Dugarjav was a excellent singer , and Stalin highly admired when he and the group of Mongolian State Theatre performed in the Soviet Union. He also was the first member of the People's Party that was the main group of Mongolian independent revolution in 1921. Furthermore he was a politician in the foreign affairs field. He was arrested for the disgrace of the counterrevolution in 1941 and died of sickness by the arrest and the prison. Tudev, who was a famous musician, also went to the USSR to join the performances of Mongolian State Theatre. He was purged as a counterrevolution and feudalism person because of his aristocratic roots.

The tunes are 《The Four Seasons》, 《A Young Coachman》, 《Jewelry Beads》, and 《Flow of the Kherlen River》.

Recorded in Moscow in 1935.
