AllMusic Review by

Mongolian flutes and stringed instruments (including the beautiful two-stringed horse's-head fiddle) are mostly used to back singers. Here one hears them mostly solo, and very beautiful they are. (Also amazingly accessible to American ears: this is not one for ethnologists alone). Good brief notes by Jean Jenkins of the Horniman Museum, who also did the recording.
