Every links below will redirect you to the Youtube video page.
If you feel more comfortable to explore directly on the Youtube playlist you can find it here.
For those who would be looking for the previous "Morin Huur lessons", they are all archived on this website and hidden from Youtube, and you will find the list at the end of this page.
NB: The term 'lesson', in the previous series, was used simply for commodity.
We wish for this server to be as constructive as possible and to be a great source of knowledge and information for any person who want to learn more about the Ancestral Mongolian Art and Culture.
I do not claim to have all the truth or to be a Morin Huur teacher. As a passionate about the Morin Huur, spending a lot of time learning and asking around about this instrument and its ancestral heritage, I simply enjoy sharing what I know and what I learned. I hope that it can be helpful to people who share the same passion!
These videos are the fruit of my research and time spent with a Mentor, sometime by myself with recordings and sometime from my own intuition.
So please considerate what I share carefully and feel free to explore on your own!
NB: Please accept my apologies for my poor English, as a French I really do my best.
Thanks a lot for watching!
May the blessing of the Eternal Blue Sky be upon you!
