Folk song

Each ethnic tribe of Mongolia has its own distinct type of folk songs. Due to the metrical rhythm and non-extended texts such folk songs are referred as short songs. Mongolian short songs are divided into two principle types: traditional and “khuree” (urban).
Traditional short songs portray nomadic lifestyle of Mongolians, where asKhuree songs witness the shift in lifestyle of settled, later generations.
