Mongolian double bass ikh khuur
Uuganbaatar grew up in Mongolia, in Dalandzadgad, in the Gobi Desert. During his youth, interested in traditional music, he came into contact with nomads who made him discover the richness of Mongolian culture. He began to play music as a self-taught artist and later joined the theater in the South Gobi region where he perfected his mastery of Ikh Khuur (Mongolian double bass) with professional musicians. After several years of tours throughout the Gobi, he enrolled at the University of Art and Culture of Ulaanbaatar, where he became a teacher. He works in parallel with the great national orchestra of the capital. He currently resides in Germany. He has travelled the globe on international tours with the Egschiglen ensemble for 15 years (Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Tunisia, Armenia, Mongolia, China, Korea, etc.).
