Summary:
"Unlike almost any other song, the verses of The two horses of Genghis Khan embody the history and paradigm change of the Mongolian people. For singer Urna Chahar-Tugchi, the song becomes the touchstone of her cultural identity after making a promise to her late grandmother to bring the family's old horse head violin back to the homeland. Her grandmother was forced to destroy the beloved violin in the turmult of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, and now only the head and neck remain intact, along with a few of the verses of the folk song that were engraved on the neck. With the dark days of the revolution now past, it is time to fulfill the promise. Arriving in Ulan Bator, Urna brings the remaining parts of the violin to Hicheengui, a renowned maker of the horse head violins, who will build a new body for the old instrument and attempt to restore it physically. However, the most difficult task still remains--locating the song's missing verses. Urna begins her arduous journey to outer Mongolia to search for the missing verses."--Container.
