Uranchimig, born in Hejing in 1945, used to teach in a high school and is now a singer of long songs (urtiin duuchin). When she was young, she learned to sing many songs from good singers at weddings and other social events. 23 songs which she recorded before her retirement are often broadcasted on the Xinjiang Mongolian Radio. As she explains, during the Cultural Revolution, singing urtiin duu was taboo, and producing a record was one of the bravest things she had ever done in her life. In 1984, she recorded 2 of her famous songs called “Hongesin Ündür Shuurai” and “Zürhün Hoogin Ehin” which are still well known amongst Mongolians in Xinjiang. Since then, she and her sisters have been performing at public social events such as the Maidar.
