Smithsonian Folklife Audio: Djangar

“The Kalmyks are the only indigenous Buddhist people in Europe. They speak an endangered Mongolic language and possess a highly developed oral, musical, and dance culture, centered around the epic tale Jangar. Musicians performed segments of the epic at the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. An informal dance followed”.
