Egshiglen Mongolian Folk Music Group to perform on October 20

Soyol Erdem University, our partner institution in Mongolia, and J. F. Oberlin University will present a performance by the Egshiglen Mongolian Folk Music Group to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Soyol Erdem University and to further cultural exchange between Japan and Mongolia. The title of the performance is “Grasslands Breeze.”

Egshiglen Mongolian Folk Music Group was established in 1996 by graduates and students of the Mongolian State University of Music, Arts, and Culture. Their goal is to popularize traditional Mongolian music and culture all over the world. They have performed in Japan, Korea, China, Germany, Italy, France, and many other countries. In 2012, they performed in Japan to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the establishment of relations between Mongolia and Japan. Batjargal Ariunzaya, a student in the College of Arts and Sciences at J. F. Oberlin University, will play the morin khuur, a traditional stringed instrument, at the event on October 20.

Support for this performance is provided by the City of Sagamihara and the Honorary Consulate of Mongolia in Sagamihara.
