Tsendsuren Enkhtur

Khuuchir Player

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Tsendsuren Enkhtur is a virtuoso khuuchir (a Mongolian traditional instrument) player based in Ulaanbaatar. Raised in a musical family, she began learning khuuchir at age 12, studying at the State Conservatory of Mongolia and continuing her masters degree at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. As an artist, Tsendsuren works to write music that celebrates traditional Mongolian music and to educate those who are unfamiliar with its ancestries and legacies. She is dedicated to extending the khuuchir repertoire, helping Mongolian craftsmen of traditional instruments, and publishing more khuuchir music. Her most recent studio album Mother Tongue consists of concertos and sonatas for khuuchir and piano by Mongolian composers.
