Happy Lunar New Year 2013!

…and to think, 12 years ago today, I was working for a Siemens vendor in China and enjoying snake broth with colleagues in Fengmei’s Beijing apartment….

In honor of the holiday, here’s a jazzy version of that Mongolian folk favorite, Migratory Birds.  I was looking for the more up tempo version I used to hear in UB in the late 90s, but this is pretty good too…

 

And for good measure, for those who are nostalgic for the steppes at this time of year, here’s Khurd’s classic, Ikh Khoron…  Fairly decent production values for when it was made, I suppose…..
