Namgar (The Kennedy Center)

Namgar

Namgar Lkhasaranova grew up in a Buryat family in the tiny village of Kunkur near the border crossing of Russia, Mongolia, and China.  She comes from a long family line of shamans.  In the heart of Siberia, under a bottomless blue sky, Namgar's songs were born.  She mastered the mysteries of the great wide open and the voices of spirits of mountains and forests.  She loves the melodies sung by her grandmother and her father and desires to maintain the tradition that is becoming extinct.
