In our last episode, we had a pleasure talking with Mr HE XIGE, who is a celebrated musician from Inner Mongolia. Mr HE is NOT ONLY an outstanding horse-head fiddle instrumentalist, but also a popular composer, who infuses modernity into traditional Mongolian fiddle music, winning the favour of numerous music lovers from home and abroad.
