When visiting UB, the Mongolian National Song and Dance Academic Ensemble's show is a must see. It offers a great overview of the Mongolian songs and dances. I remember seeing their show a couple of years ago, the khoomii singer was throat singing O Sole mio. I guess, foreign tourists find it quite entertaining, since it's a very well-known song. But, why O Sole mio? It seems like most of the khoomii singers sing this song at one point of their carrers. Okay, I digress.... Anyway, they have great artists and it's a pity missing it if you visit the country.

There is a female khoomii singer in the ensemble. I don't know who she is. She is good!
