We announced previous that a first edition of Cosmopolitan international magazine for women will be published by Mongolian language soon.  A big party for the Cosmopolitan will take place and a number of famous stars will arrive in Mongolia, to participate in the official opening ceremony of the magazine. One of them celebrities is Urnaa.  Her full name is Urnaa Chahar Tugchi. Read more...

Urnaa was born into a family of herders in the grasslands of the Ordos district in the Southwest region of Inner Mongolia. Today Urnaa is regarded as one of the most outstanding female vocalists of Asia. Based in Bavaria/Germany and Cairo/Egypt, Urnaa continues to carry the spirit of her homeland in her music as she performs around the world.

Urnaa’s developed her musical talent and instincts while learning the Yangqin (Chinese dulcimer) in Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia, with a visiting professor from the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. At the age of eighteen, Urnaa decided to leave Mongolia to study at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, an extraordinarily brave decision, for at the time she did not speak one word of Mandarin Chinese and her family knew very little of Shanghai, let alone its location. With this move, Urnaa’s life and career took a dramatic turn.

One Russian music critic named Urnaa, along with the Tuvan singer Sainkho, one of the “two Asian Divas”. In the summer of 2003, Urnaa sealed her place as a major contributor to world music in Europe when she was awarded the RUTH prize in Germany for Best International Artist.


Urnaa’s latest recording, Amilal (Life), is a collaborative effort that features accompaniment from the highly acclaimed Zarb percussion masters from Iran, Djamchid Chemirani and Keyvan Chemirani. Completed in 2004, Amilal is Urnaa’s personal record of her travels after leaving Mongolia, and portrays her views of the world and human beings, as well as her wish for a peaceful world.
