Mongolia: viral video of the original Instant House.

The Nomad’s Ger.

Complete with throat singing.


From the video:

The nomadic people of Mongolia don’t stay in one place for long. That’s why they live in gers (which American’s know by the Russian name, yurt), a home that is fast and easy to assemble and disassemble. Putting up a ger (pronounced gair) is fast and easy, but its best done by an entire family. This ger was moved by the family of Shagdarsuren Herelchuluun, on the east side of Lake Hovsgol, in northern Mongolia, not far from the Russian border.

The sound track of this video is music recorded at the Choijin Lama Temple Museum in Ulaanbator, the Mongolian capital.

For another example of throat singing, please see my other video from Mongolia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQREygFSJLg
