This intensive Experience is for all music lovers who deeply desire to have “a taste” ethnic instruments unique to particular countries… From Mongolia’s rich cultural musical history – almost no instrument is culturally and traditionally defined as “being” Mongol than the famed Horse-head Fiddle.
Today we’ll see how a horse-head fiddle is produced before we make our way to the studio where our local resident/state-honored professional will provide you an ‘on hands’ introduction in relation to the instrument. From this time forwards you will be instructed by the professional Fiddler – you’ll be taught the basic holding techniques, cello-like movements, and initial hand-postures to produce different notes across the musical scale. If you are ‘lucky’ – as it’s 100% dependent on you – you may even learn a quick melody that captures the spirit of the Mongol Horse before the evening’s folk concert and sampling of Mongolian nomadic cuisines.
