I Sing Ulaan Bataar

Prof. Gary Rawnsley has an interesting piece in the USC CPD blog called I Sing Beijing on cultural diplomacy and the possibly tenuous connection to a nation's soft power.

His piece reminded me about a strange story about Mongolian throat singing, a tradition that Mongolians taught to China, only to see China claim it in UNESCO as its own.
