Gobi desert

Travelling with music.

Dancing in the desert. Excellent.....

Goviin Magtaal by Egschiglen. The lyrics of this song invite the listener to visit the desert and while visiting the desert to stay a while in a nomad's ger. Nice.

Yeah the Gobi. Such strange place. When I walked there in Western Mongolia, I felt I was in a dream. Such surrealistic place. One moment I walked through desert sand, and then at a certain point there is this border, really a STRAIGHT line were the sand stops and the perfectly green grass starts to grow!

Never know the meaning of the song of Egschiglen by the way. Nice.

About the dancing in Gobi video; Is this played by Khukh Mongol? I hear this kid singing, I only know Kukh Mongol ensemble having a kid. But I never heard them sing.. I like it though, sounds so funny!!!!

I've been to the Gobi when I was like 6 or 7 years old, so I don't remember much. But I do remember seeing a mirage (looked like a bunch of camels) far away, which was very cool .

I don't know who is interpreting the song. The kid gives a very nice touch to the song.
