Mongolia is Calling Me

Words cannot accurately capture how thrilled I am to learn that I received a grant from the American Center for Mongolian Studies to go to Mongolia this summer to study Mongolian traditional music making and issues of intangible cultural heritage.

Those of you who have known me for a while will know of my interest in Mongolian music, not just the throat singing but also the horse-headed fiddle as well (morin khuur). To have the opportunity to actually go there is so riveting I am truly having difficulty thinking about anything else. Incredible.

When I first heard of the grant I looked at the page and there was a caption that read "Mongolia is calling you." Truer words have never been spoken.
