Following a decision by the Minister of Education Culture and Science L.Gantumur, the “Mongolian Song to the World” competition is going to be aired in four stages. The purpose of the competition is to sing modern Mongolian pop songs in a foreign language, primarily English, and to promote Mongolian songs. “Doly Production”, which belongs to the composer and Mongolian Honorary Artist B.Dolgion, is working as the co-organizer.
The Ministry of Education Culture and Science has provided information about the competition. During a press conference, Minister Gantumur said: “We are going through hard economic times; the frequent economic crises are a result of the fact that Mongolia is almost totally dependent on mining. The only way to earn dollars is by mining. Many economic measures need to be taken to make Mongolia a more stable country. One of these ways needs to be art and culture. Here we are opening the gate to promoted “ready cultural exports” to the world, not just the domestic market”.
The competition will be aired from 29th January on several TV networks, namely: MN25, UBS Music, Star TV, Royal TV, 11 channel, World TV, SCH TV, and Parliament TV. The Honorary Artist B.Dashdondog, the composer and Leading Artist B.Angirmaa and the singer K.Nominjin will be the permanent team of judges.
