2022-07-20



 On July 14, LCC invited SHEN JUN Band coming from the vast grassland of Inner Mongolia to launch the second concert in its series prominently featuring world and national intangible cultural heritages. Founded in 2006, the musical band of the Mongolian ethnic minority has been performing around the world, playing the Morin Khuur, singing Urtin Duu, and using the magnificent art form of Khöömei. With lively and unchained melodies, the audiences are seemingly galloping across an endless grassland under the boundless sky.
