Founded in 1957 on the Mongol grasslands, Ulanmuchi now has expanded to 46 small ensembles, with over 2,800 singers and dancers. It has taken part in various events both in China and abroad.
For decades, Ulanmuchi has been dedicated to putting on diverse performances reflecting Mongolian history and traditional nomadic customs, vividly reproducing the spirit of Mongolian ethnic groups.
