“I am happy to have won gold medals in two categories in the B class international competition. I participated in the aria and romance categories. For the romance category, I performed ‘Mongolian Steppe’ by State Honored Cultural Figure, composer B.Sharav. Previously, G.Ariunbaatar performed the song in the UK. From this, one can see that the world has taken interest in Mongolian songs. I believe this is due to the many great singers, who performed our songs at prestigious international competitions. The audience received it greatly during my performance of ‘Mongolian Steppe’. I’m sure that Mongolian works will soon be considered as a part of the world classics.”
