Etugen, traditional music
Etugen: a Mongolian earth goddess. Also known as Itugen. Etugen was believed to be perpetually virginal. Her name originates from Otuken, the holy mountain of the earth goddess of the ancient Turks. Medieval sources sometimes pair Etugen with a male counterpart named Natigai. Although this is probably a mistake based on a mispronunciation of Etugen. In Mongol mythology Etugen is often represented as a young woman riding a grey bull. Taken from wikipedia
