The western region of Mongolia, especially the people in “Chandmani” soum of “Khovd” province, is making an actual contribution in developing the overtone singing. In this regard, Citizens’ Representative Meeting and the Governor’s Office in “Khovd” province, and the Overtone Singing Association will jointly organize the “Historical Day of Pride” for registering the overtone singing in the world record.

That being the case, the organizers of the event have encouraged the citizens and tourists to take part in this great event for registering the overtone singing in the “Guinness World Record” as broadly as possible.
