COUNTRY: Mongolia, also Russia (Kalmykia)

This is a rousing reinterpretation of this super-rousing version of Jangar, the Oirat/Kalmyk epic tale of Jangar the great warrior. Hongor, featured in the song, was Jangar’s second-in-command and credited throughout the epic for saving Jangar’s lands and the Kalymk people from enemies.

All Around This World’s lyrics:

Jangar, Jangar, Jangar, Jangar . . . !
Asar ulagan Hongor
Stronger than a thousand men
We tell your tale and tell your tale and then we’ll tell your tale again
