Abstract

This paper explores the specific features of musical folklore in Mongolian Shamanic tradition through the four essential features of folk art works, selectivity, existence, continuity and complexity. Adopting the systematic theory of Mongolian folklore including folk music which was developed by Jamtsyn Badraa, Mongolian folklorist, on the basis of Indian philosopher Nagarjuna’s Eightfold Negation, the author examines the chanting ways (formation or improvisation), functions (non- or multifunctional), learning process (transmission), and authorship (collectivity and individuality) of Mongolian Shamanic chanting.
