La musique traditionnelle pour flûte tsuur

Inscrit en 2009 (4.COM) sur la Liste du patrimoine immatériel nécessitant une sauvegarde urgente

© 2009 by National Centre for the Intangible Cultural Heritage
La musique pour flûte tsuur repose sur une technique à la fois instrumentale et vocale : un mélange de sons produits simultanément par l’instrument et par la gorge du musicien. La musique pour flûte tsuur est inséparable des populations mongoles Uriankhai de la région de l’Altaï et fait, aujourd’hui encore, partie intégrante de leur vie quotidienne. Elle plonge ses racines dans la pratique ancienne du culte de la nature et de ses esprits gardiens, qui consistait à imiter des sons naturels. La flûte tsuur est un instrument à vent en bois en forme de tuyau vertical avec trois trous pour les doigts. La pression des dents de devant sur l’embouchure de la flûte et l’utilisation simultanée de la gorge produisent un timbre unique composé d’un son clair et doux et d’un bourdon. La flûte tsuur est traditionnellement jouée comme invocation pour faire bonne chasse ou pour avoir un temps clément, comme bénédiction pour éloigner le danger pendant un voyage ou pour les mariages et autres festivités. La musique, qui est aussi un art d’interprétation, traduit les sentiments intimes du voyageur solitaire et relie l’homme à la nature. La tradition de la flûte tsuur se perd depuis quelques décennies, par négligence et animosité à l’égard des coutumes populaires et de la foi religieuse, laissant de nombreux endroits sans joueur de tsuur ni familles possédant une flûte tsuur. Les quarante instruments connus préservés au sein du groupe des Mongols Uriankhai sont transmis exclusivement grâce à la mémoire des générations successives : cette caractéristique rend cet art extrêmement vulnérable au risque de disparition.

A.6. Synthèse du rapport

Tsuur music, a combination of instrumental and vocal performance, is an ancient form of Mongolian music with a unique sound.
Since th Hunnu dynasty, the Uriankhai Mongols of the Altai region in Western Mongolia have related Tsuur music to the spirit of the Altai Mountains, and revered it as a force to ward off evil from a household.
The forty known folk melodies and tunes of the Tsuur repertoire are transmitted by memory and are currently preserved by descendants and apprentices of the ancient nomads, that populated the northern and southern slopes of the Mongolian Altai Mountains. The traditional music of the Tsuur forms an important part of the Uriankhai Mongolian’s relationship with their natural environment and a critical element in assuring their survival within it. It accompanies daily activities and animal herding as well as religious ceremonies and rituals.
Traditionally found among members of the Uriankhai ethnic group of the Altai Region, the Tsuur and its traditions are preserved today largely by the descendant of the late Paarain Narantsogt of the Tsgaan Tug clan, in Duut soum, Khovd province, in westernmost Mongolia.
Many long and short term projects have accomplished in last 4 years in order to identify the ‘Tsuur’ music bearers, register them, study, disseminate and transmit to the next generations. We did several series of works such as restoring ‘Tsuur’ music instrument art and its tradition in Altai Uriankhai tribe where it has originated and to disseminate this art to the other tribe and regions in order to urgent safeguarding the ‘Tsuur’ and its tradition and to create social environment which supports ‘Tsuur’ music and its players. The ‘Tsuur’ art could overcome its danger to vanish and getting stronger to continue exists, as a results of these works.
Bearers, communities and groups’ involvement has a vital responsibility to protect the ‘Tsuur’ music art and these talented people who are the bearers actively working hard to transmit this art for the next generation, disseminate and restore this art at the same time to safeguard the tradition as it was from the beginning. Trainings about transmitting this tradition is conducted by two ways traditional apprenticeship training and classroom training. The trainings of this heritage have conducted in Duut and Jargalant soum in Hovd province, Buyant, Ulgii and Ulaanhus sum in Bayan-Ulgii province, Sumber soum of Gobisumber province, Orkhon province and in the capital city during the report period. These training have led by the famous ‘Tsuur’ player P.Narantsogt’s offspring and his students. There are aroundu, 100 teenagers and young adults who have learnt or leaning how to play this instrument as a result of these trainings. Statistic shows that the number of ‘Tsuur’ players and its trainees have increased 9 times in last four years.
We still need to continue what we are doing and increase the boundaries even there are such good results shown in a work of protecting the ‘Tsuur’ music and its tradition and create sustainability.
Consequently, in January, 2014 the Mongolian Government has decreed a National Safeguarding Plan of the “Traditional music of the Tsuur” and its going to be implemented within 3 years.The aim of the project is to revitalize and safeguard and transmit the Tsuur music.

B. Etat de l'élément inscrit sur la liste de sauvegarde urgente

B.1. Fonctions sociales et culturelles

The art of tsuur music is an important part of cultural heritage to the bearers, the family tradition, the communities who practice this art and produce this musical instrument. It has a very high social and cultural functions that bring certain identity and pride among the communities.
Tsuur is one the Mongolian main musical instruments. When a person play tsuur, his throat and bagpipe’s whistle harmonized and make special timbre which distinguishes it from the rest of the music instruments. It also has a significant difference than other wooden wind instruments. This unrepeatable difference of bagpipe art is very special development of performing art of human kind, not only in Mongolia.
Since the inscription of this element on the UNESCO List of Urgent Safeguarding of ICH, the public awareness and understanding has increased nationwide.
The representation of the tsuur music and its custom are conserved in traditional manner during the activities that are organised for safeguarding and transmitting the traditionel art of tsuur.

B.2. Analyse de sa viabilité et risques auxquels il est actuellement exposé

Altai Uriankhai is the only tribe which inherited the tradition of bagpipe art among the other tribes. It has noted that the each Uriankhai family had bagpipe at their homes and most of the Uriankhai men used to play bagpipe till the end of last century. Unfortunately this art and heritage came at the edge of vanishing by the end of the twentieth century. The main result was historical dark period which tried to neglect the traditional culture and religion. It treated traditional art and culture as a part of old time and it was government plan to get rid of tradition and art of people.
Last 4 years, the art of ‘Tsuur’ music spread from the bearer community to the regional level where the folk musicians and students play. In order to identify the ‘Tsuur’ music bearers, register them, study, disseminate and transmit to the next generations. We did several series of works such as restoring ‘Tsuur’ music instrument art and its tradition in Altai Uriankhai tribe where it has originated and to disseminate this art to the other tribe and regions in order to urgent safeguarding the ‘Tsuur’ and its tradition and to create social environment which supports ‘Tsuur’ music and its players. Bearers, communities and groups’ involvement has a vital responsibility to protect the ‘Tsuur’ music art and these talented people who are the bearers actively working hard to transmit this art for the next generation, disseminate and restore this art. Trainings about transmitting this tradition is conducted by two ways traditional apprenticeship training and classroom training. Statistic shows that the number of ‘Tsuur’ players and its trainees have increased 9 times in last four years. Its survival capacity and sustainable development are increased, thus may be considered as being far from the danger.
Nevertheless, in January 2014 the Mongolian Government has decreed a National Safeguarding Plan of the “Traditional music of the Tsuur” and its going to be implemented within 3 years. The aim of the project is to revitalize and safeguard and transmit the Tsuur music.
The objectives are to:
• Strengthen the research and establish registration-information database through a field-survey focusing on the current state of traditional music of the Tsuur;
• Improving the viability of the Tsuur by training new generation of performers, while also reviving traditional method of apprenticeship-training;
• Improving the capacity-building of the bearers, concerned NGOs, community-based organizations and professionals by involving in safeguarding measures;
• Raise the awareness among general public through production of media and;
Expected outcomes:
• Database will have created from registration and documentation materials gathered during Filed survey. This database is to be enriched and improved year by year basis even beyond the completion of the Project;
• The traditional apprenticeship method will have restored;
• Through the activities, awareness of the importance and understanding to revitalize and safeguard the element will have raised;

B.3e. Efficacité globale des activités de sauvegarde

Tsuur music’s ability to coexistance improved in the result of the series of tsuur music safeguarding activities which are mentioned above. We accomplished to restore the traditional Mongolian tsuur music which includes tradition of playing the tsuur, developing, training, studing, promoting, and providing in sustainable framework.
The main result was historical dark period which tried to neglect the traditional culture and religion. It treated traditional art and culture as a part of old time and it was government plan to get rid of tradition and art of people.
In order to identify the ‘Tsuur’ music bearers, register them, study, disseminate and transmit to the next generations Mongolian tsuur music tradition has restored and certain improvements appeared in the ways of protecting, developing, teaching, studying, researching, disseminating and sustaining the tradition. Community and its people’s understanding and awareness improved about tsuur music tradition and its social value has increased dramatically.
Mongolian tsuur survived the risk of vanishing and good foundation established for tsuur music art to still be an important part of traditional musical instrument and Mongolian traditional intangible cultural heritage.
We are working on to combine traditional "apprenticeship training" method with modern teaching principles and need to find effective teaching structure for formal and informal training systems in order to inherit the bagpipe to the next generations. Art of tsuur has spread well and developed out from Altai Mountain and Uriankhai tribe`s area and number of tsuur players has increased. Also it is not sufficient to focus on increasing the number of players who know how to make a sound of tsuur in order to safeguarding the Mongolian traditional tsuur music.
But we didn’t have not enough budget to accomplish the activities that we planned. We need to develop good legal and financial environment in order to guarantee the life of bearers and the need of setting good motivation system.
We couldn’t accpomlish the following two plans: Organizing Mongolian traditional Tsuur music Festival and Reporting Performance of the tsuur music trainings. So we postponed to accomplish them in 2014. Also we don’t have enough human resource to conduct all the trainings. Recovering the tradition of wooden tsuur requires long time and effort. Because playing tsuur demands dual action of vocal cords and extraordinary technique. Therefore not everybody learns playing tsuur as well as they need rehearsals with teacher`s instruction and hard studying.
The art of playing Mongolian tsuur is a wide concept which requires to acquire the richest repertory imagination`s developed by bearers to heirs of generations. Currently there are around 40 folk pieces of Mongol Altaic Uriankhai tribe`s inherited repertory notified they represent nature, mountains, water draws, animal sound, relationship between humankind and nature, human feelings. Those tunes transmitted by hearing and memory through generations instead of music notes, which means it is in a danger of vanishing with the players who practice.
As time goes by the traditional tsuur is coming closer to the edge of vanishing and we insure that the safeguarding work of transmission to the next generation, studying and spreading will continue sustainably.

B.4. Participation des communautés

Uriankhai’s “Tsagaan Tug” clan’s traditional tsuur music player P.Narantsogt’s students and offspring had biggest roles in the task of safeguarding the Tsuur music tradition and heritage. They are P.Narantsogt’s sons: N.Buyandelger, N.Erdenebaatar, grandsons: B.Naranbat, B.Zagdjav, M.Sukhnasan, B.Nekhjargal, T.Erdenebaatar, B.Munguntsooj, granddaughters: B.Bayartsetseg,B.Battsooj, B.Munkhchimeg, students: N.Sengedorj, Damdinjav, A.Baldandorj and E.Baatarjav. These people are the sole bearers and protecting Mongolian tsuur music's tradition. This group, community of bearers have 15 active members and the group has both elder and young members. They conducted trainings using the traditional apprenticeship training and classroom training method. Besides, they contributed in development of the training and dissemination activities such as a guidebook, DVD, CD. Also were actively involved in the activities in order to safeguard, protect, restore, develop, disseminate, transmit, inherit, teach and promote it through media, publication and radio.
Safeguarding the tradition and heritage of tsuur music is very important and matter of reputation affecting responsibility for the members of “Tsagaan Tug” clan. Also there's few craftsmen who makes tsuur musical instrument and teenagers who are learning to play tsuur music joined the community and it guarantees that the art of traditional tsuur music’s development in the future. These bearers are specialized by their heritage Altaic Urianhai’s tsuur playing method, traditions, repertory and tsuur musical instrument hand making techniques in the same place where this art is originated.
