 Mongolia is hardly a hot bed in the world music scene. Indeed, the myriad styles of Asian music are usually ignored. But the Mongolian music tradition seems more Occidental in origin than would normally be thought. It's definitely Asiatic, but often the backing music is based on the same pentatonic scales and familiar chord progressions of European music. And many of the instruments are used to similar effect, diminishing the cultural gap normally associated with the music of uncommon cultures while still being just "odd" enough to be interesting.
