Welcome to Seattle Center
Our Traditional Mongolian music performances consist of two parts:
THEN: Mongolian music heavily relied on traditional instruments such as the morin khuur (horsehead fiddle) and the yoochin (a type of hammered dulcimer). Throat singing, a distinctive technique producing multiple tones simultaneously, was a crucial element.
NOW: Mongolian music performances showcase a blend of tradition and modernity. While traditional instruments continue to play a significant role, contemporary influences have introduced elements like electronic instrumentation and fusion genres. Throat singing remains a unique and revered aspect, contributing to the rich tapestry of Mongolian musical expression across both historical and modern contexts.

Artists At the Center is a multi-year collaboration between Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and Seattle Center, with support from Uptown Arts & Culture Coalition and the communities adjacent to Seattle Center campus. The project is made possible by a 10-year grant from Climate Pledge Arena and Seattle Kraken.
Join us as we introduce emerging and established artists and celebrate their talent on a newly revitalized Seattle Center campus. Artists are given a performance opportunity, allowing them to connect with new audiences, display their talents and advance their careers. Visitors to campus and the surrounding neighborhood benefit from surprising and delightful pop-up performances throughout the year. Each year, artists are selected with an equity and social justice lens, ensuring equitable representation for underserved and emerging artists. Artistic genres include music, dance, theater, demonstrations, and multi-disciplinary work.
