Mongolian folk (Menggu Minge) 蒙古民歌


Definition

‘Menggu Minge’ is not a literal term because authentic Mongolian music exists only in Mongolia but the ancient tunes of the steppes have evolved in various forms in the Han Chinese world. There are the heavily produced (often lip-synced) songs on state TV, where singers perform in operatic fashion and with lyrics that satisfy the audiences’ need for exotic cultural flavours. - Wang Ge[1]
