The instrument its composed by wood and horse hairs, used to make the strings. It is said that the Morin Khuur posses healing powers.
Morin Khuur teaches have always been transmitted orally, and theirs songs tell about ancient families, warriors and daily life in the steppes. Its sound and rhythm are inspired from the movement of the animals as the horse, the crown, the eagle, the mouse, etc.
Often accompanied by dance and throat singing, the sound of the song is similar also in Inner-Mongolia, Tuva, and other mongoloid tribes in the Siberia, where the sound is very close to the Mongolian one, while the words change on the base of the langue, showing a long heritage derived from the old Mongolian Emperor and the constant interaction between the nomads.
