Tumen Ekh is one of the best national song and dance ensembles in Mongolia. The name is translated as "leader of ten thousand". Outstanding artists took the name of famous folk song Tumen Ekh and joined together to form this ensemble.

The music of Mongolia expresses vastness, freedom and life in harmony with nature and the environment. The Tumen Ekh ensemble is one of the most successful folk art groups to share traditional Mongolian music with the world, having traveled to over 40 countries to introduce the unique, vibrant and astonishing art of Mongolia. They have successfully performed at the World Music Center in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and Buckingham Palace in the UK among others. But Tumen Ekh is more than just a group of performers on a stage. Members of the ensemble participate in cultural exchanges, conduct research and studies on folklore and engage in training and creative activities.

The ensemble gives its performances in the premises like the yurt palace of ancient Mongolian Khans, without any microphone or technical support. You will listen to the wonders of long and short folk songs, pic and eulogy songs, perfomance on the traditional musical instruments, khuumii (throat) signing, well-wishing and see the miracle of folk dances, shaman dance, contortion and religious mask dance and spectacular acrobatic perfomance.

Their performances are highly professional but retain the authenticity and traditions of nomadic culture.
