info 

Mongolian music is primarily pastoral and vocal. Three unique vocal techniques are used: khailakh (shouting, i.e. the use of a strained, guttural voice), duulakh (singing, i.e. using the natural voice in a more melodious way) and koomei (throat singing or overtone singing, the technique of producing vocal harmonics). Musical instruments are traditionally used as accompaniment for the voice. The morin khuur or horse-head fiddle is the Mongolian national instrument. Other instruments include jew’s harps, flutes and a plucked lute.
