About us

Since 2006, Routes Nomades Association promotes Mongolian culture in Europe by organizing cultural and artistic events around the traditional music, especially khöömii.

Inviting Mongolian artists every year, we organized more than a hundred concerts, over forty workshops of overtone singing and coproduced 3 records of grand masters with the Buda Musique (Music from the World Collection) and Pan Records (Ethnic Series Collection) labels. With all these adventures, the French filmmaker Jean-François Castell made the documentary “Masters of Overtone singing” (2010) which won multiple awards and recently "Journey In Diphonia" (Release May 2018).
