Questions for Discussion
- Research the history and geography of Mongolia. This name refers to an independent country as well as a region of northern China. What traditions are shared across these two areas?
- What did you notice when listening to the Mongolian throat singing performance? Did it sound like anything you have heard before?
- If you were going to write a four-minute song using only ten words, what words would you select and why? What story would these words tell?
