The name Altan Urag can be loosely translated to Golden lineage, referring to Chinggis Khan and his ancestors. The band’s vision is to promote Mongolian culture to the world and introduce traditional music to the young people of Mongolia. The band members play the morin khuur (horse head fiddle), ikh khuur (grand horse head fiddle), percussion, bishguur (traditional horn) and yoochin (hammered dulcimer). The vocalists are throat singers and long song singers and all were trained in traditional and classical Mongolian music. Recent music videos are Mother Mongolia, Requiem, Waves & Mother Mongolia, The Blue Mark, Rah2, See-Saw and the Beast. Their music was featured prominently in the 2006 movie Khadak and in the 2007 movie Mongol.
