Survival of the Fittest: Folk Song Traditions in Changing Mongolia

November 3, 2015 in the Presidents’ Lounge.  Lecture and presentation by Dr. Sunmin Yoon.  In 2005 UNESCO proclaimed the Mongolian Long Song as a UNISCO Masterpiece, and later, in 2008, listed it as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.  Now, as a result, more Mongolians are taking pride in this tradition as a representative aspect of their national culture.  Dr. Sunmin Yoon discusses the Mongolian Long Song and efforts in the past and present to promote and preserve it.
