In the past years there has been a revival of the Mongolian culture and especially the art of the morin khuur. I personally witnessed it when I was in Mongolia this Summer.

I was quite impressed when I saw how many parents send their kids to morin khuur classes.
The New York Times published an article about the morin khuur:
