YIK-CCN (Ih Tsetsn) is a Beijing-based ethnic music ensemble whose members grew up in the grasslands of Inner Mongolia. Each of the performers was born into a family of cattle breeders and at an early age began to learn the Mongolian "morinhur" violin (a two-stringed instrument with a horse's head), as well as other instruments from their parents and folk musicians. They graduate from professional music schools, where they improve their skills and manage to rise to the level of masters. Musicians master bowed and harp stringed instruments, as well as traditional Mongolian throat singing (hoomei). Subsequently, they performed in professional art troupes in Inner Mongolia. They have appeared in a number of shows on China Central Television and have repeatedly won awards from prestigious national and international competitions. They are representatives of the new generation of young Mongolian performers and skillfully combine musicianship with a deep musical sensitivity acquired as a result of their long life in the vast grasslands. The ensemble boasts a number of performances in China and other countries around the world, including Germany, Italy, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium and the USA, and in 2014 they performed a solo concert at the Kennedy Center in Washington.
