I’ve just watched Morin Khuur: The Soul Of The Mongolian Horseman – a wonderful documentary about four city children who travel to the Mongolian steppes to learn the Morin Khuur, an ancestral horsehair fiddle that is said to have healing powers. The children then take their new skills, traditional costumes and dances back to teach others. A great example of how culture can be retained if urbalisation is overcome by children maintaining a link with country and the earth. In Australia- we need to High School kids to spend time in the country and on farms to learn about food and real living.
