Long Song

Studio 360

The nomadic herders of Mongolia's Gobi Desert preserve an oral tradition --- thousands of epic poems and melodies, many never recorded. So the best way to learn the folk songs of the Gobi herders might be to go there and drive around. That's how an American student took up Long Song. Produced by Allan Coukell.
