Explore Mongolian Morin, Morin Khuur and more!

Morin Khuur (Horse-head-fiddle) – The most ancient musical instrument of the Mongols is the morin khuur, invented during the Hun period over 2000 years ago. When Mongolians were an entirely nomadic nation, the horse was their basic means of transport, as well as man’s best friend. Many songs and poems were written extolling the horse. There are a number of legends about how the morin khuur was first created, all based on a man’s love for a dead horse.
