Formed in 2002, Altan Urag is an ethnic folk rock band whose music fuses traditional Mongolia sounds with contemporary influences. The name Altan Urag can be loosely translated as "Kin of the Khan" or "Golden Lineage", referring to Ghengis Khan and his ancestors. The band's vision is both to promote Mongolian culture to the world and to introduce traditional music to the young people of their country. The band's seven members are skillful players of traditional instruments: morin khuur (horse-head fiddle), ikh khuur (grand horse-head fiddle), bishuur (traditional horn), and yochin (hammered dulcimer), and percussion. The vocalists are throat and long song singers and have all been trained in traditional and classical Mongolian music. Altag Urag performed on the soundtrack of Mongol.
