Mongolian Long Tune

Mongolian Long Tune is called “Urtin Duu” in Mongolian language, which means “Long Song”,not only because the songs are long, but also because each syllable of text is extended for a long duration. Dated back to thousands of years ago, it is the art formrepresenting the highest achievement of Mongolian singing art, reputed as the “living fossil of prairie m usic”. It has structure and elements different from the singing art of any nation in the world. Its uniqueness lies in the extensive use of ornaments and falsettos, rich variations in rhythm contained in its long, continuous flow of melodies, extremely wide ranges and the improvised creative form. Enjoying a pastoral song in Mongolian long tune is like standing in the vast grassland to talk to nature. This state of art is called the “perfect unity of the sounds of nature and the sounds of heart” by many musicians and singers, and the “highly free, perfect unity of man and nature” by estheticians. On November 25, 2005, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) announced the third batch of masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity at its Paris headquarters, and the “Mongolian Long Tune Folk Songs” were listed on the “World List of Intangible Cultural Heritage”.
