Embrace the Mongolian Vibe.



Essential China

The Mongolian Vibe from the Steppes

Matouqin (horse-headed fiddle, aka morin khuur), as one of the precious legacies of the Mongolian people, has been heartily embraced by Chinese musicians today as a vital musical element. Its unique sound character complements other classical Chinese instruments in a way like no others.

Matouqin is believed to be originated from the nomadic people during the Tang Dynasty (7th - 10th centuries), and became widely known circa Genghis Khan's reign. Nowadays, like many other Mongolian legacies, Matouqin has become a valuable part of Chinese culture.

Besides the horse-headed pegbox, Matouqin is very recognizable for its unusual playing techniques and styles. Our production approached Matouqin in pursuit of the indigenous flavour instead of the more Westernized style, and by delivering that flavour, all the composers and musicians now have a chance to explore and express in the most authentic and original Mongolian flavour easily.

HuGejiletu, a member of the Hanggai band in China, is the recording Matouqin musician of this project.

Extraordinary Playability

Matouqin contains various types of legato, tremolo, trills, slaps, and staccato, as well as special techniques, phrases and articulations.

With the extensive sampling, Modwheel triggered expressions, along with the already established tradition of superior knowledge in the instruments, the live playability of Matouqin is, like all the Kong Audio plugins, unmatchable.
