Sundui Chimidkhorloo is a Palm Harbor resident and native of Mongolia. His childhood was filled with music. After graduating high school, he studied for eight years at the Music Teacher’s College and the National Art & Cultural University.  Sundui accomplished a Masters Degree of Music.

Since Sundui and his family moved to Tampa Bay, he has been invited to perform live concerts and events throughout the United   States. Sundui performed the National Anthem of the United States “The Star Spangled Banner” at MacDill Air-Force base in Tampa, FL. He is a member of SPIFFS organization and has performed at their International Folk Fair main stage for the last 2 years. Most recently, he performed at the “UN’s Day of Peace” concert in 2013.

Sundui plays a special instrument originating from Mongolia called a Horse Head Violin (Morin Khuur). Horse head violin is a two-stringed instrument played with a bow. The strings are horse tail hair. The violin has a rectangular shaped body and a beautifully carved horse head on the top of the neck. This instrument plays Horse Walk and Camel Story, native and nomad Mongolian daily life, nature’s sounds, and the relationship between animals and herdsman.  The horse hair violin accompanies the Mongolian Long Song and traditional tribal dances.

Sundui has recorded a Horse Head Violin CD called “Sound of Earth” and performed a live concert at the Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg, FL. He not only plays traditional pieces; he also performs the European classical pieces and his own compositions, which inspires audiences to stand on their feet.
