Bayasgulang, Gangraima

Change log


Ujeed, Uranchimeg 


Bayasgualng, and amateur bard who has a passion for singing by playing the instrument called dörben utasutu hugur (four stringed fiddle). Gangraima is a narrative song named after the female figure of the song. The song is about a married noble called Da Noyan who was in love with another woman called Gangraima. Main body of the song is an antiphonal singing between the Da Noyan and his wife Yangjidma which shows the contradiction between pure passion and morality, responsibility and downfall of pursuing only one’s passion. It used a lot of analogue from Chinese classical novels for illustrating ideas of both sides.
