Description: Kalmyk folk songs are imbued with deep historical, cultural, and aesthetic meanings and layers. Notable and tragic events, the fate of various people, famous and ordinary alike, ideals, hopes, and desires: all have found their reflection in folk songs. Folk songs have been performed during rituals and ceremonies, as well as in the context of everyday life. They include a variety of themes, including historical, religious, educational, wedding, love, and other themes. In terms of the size of melodic lines, folk songs can be divided into the following types: long songs, hymns , lyrical songs, and songs performed with a dombra (musical instrument).
Today hymns and long song are not so well remembered, and the melodies of many old songs have been modified by modern performers. In contrast, lyrical songs and songs sung with dombra still enjoy great popularity among the Kalmyks.
