At dinner tonight - San Marino's Pizza, the best Roman pizza in the neighbourhood - Jack was telling me about his trip to Mongolia this past fall. He mentioned a video set to a pop-treatment of a Mongolian folksong that he really enjoyed and that is very popular in China right now.
He gave me a very rough translation from the Chinese: the singer has never visited his parents homeland but when he sees it for the first it awakens something in his soul. He discovers that this place has always lived in his heart and rejoices that now he is part of the grasslands of his father and the river of his mother.
Though I'm not really a big fan of this type of pop I find the initial melody and the visuals quite arresting.
