The unique melodies of Mongolian music conjure images of the beautiful landscape of the Inner Mongolia prairie and provide a better understanding about Mongolians, known for their passionate, hospitable and generous character.
On Feb. 14, the Richmond River Rock Theatre in Vancouver was witness to a grand feast of Inner Mongolian style. Along with an unparalleled dancing style and naturally unrestrained melodies, the audience experienced the emotions of the vast prairie.
Bo Lee, who plays the horse-headed lute, along with the well-known Mongolia singing group Lucky Three, and the popular prairie performer Little Prince Udawood provided the entertainment.
This event was hosted by the Canadian Alliance of Chinese Associations and United Global Chinese Women’s Association of Canada and organized by Harmony Culture Media Communication Ltd.
Proceeds from the performance were to be donated to the Canadian International Education Assistance Foundation to help poor children and orphans from China.
