It's been 12 years since Routes Nomades has been developing musical and heritage projects around khöömii (Mongolian throat-singing).
Started our adventure on the paths of Mongolia, from Ulaanbaatar to the High Altai, we have explored different musical horizons on the way since 2006; until the edition of the first Anthology of Mongolian Khöömii (2017), through the elaboration of the nomination file of the Mongolian Traditional Art of Khöömii on the Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, UNESCO (inscribed in 2010).

Inviting Mongolian artists every year since 2006, we organized more than a hundred concerts, over fifty workshops of throat-singing and produced 4 CDs with Buda Musique and Pan Records labels. With all these adventures, a French filmmaker Jean-François Castell made the documentary “Masters of Overtone singing” (2010) and "Journey Into Khöömii" (2018) which won multiple awards.

Since June 2018 Routes Nomades is an ONG accredited by UNESCO.
