Call for Abstracts
The “Second Morin Khuur Festival in the USA” is planned for the 9th and 10th of October, 2021, at the International House, University of California, Berkeley, USA. The festival aims to promote the contemporary development of the morin khuur through a meeting of amateurs and professionals interested in this ancient Mongolian musical instrument. Participants will discuss the current state of the instrument, its construction, and possible future directions of its development. Festival organizers hope this event will further introduce the instrument and Mongolian culture to America and encourage Mongolians living in this nation to protect their cultural heritage. The festival will include a scholarly presentation, concerts, master classes, panel discussions, and a contest for amateur morin khuur players.
