Dmitriy Strugovtsov and Ekaterina Chudinova, presenters of the concert told the audience about the difference of Asian nomad people’s clothes:
“Mongolian national costume differs from others in cutting, decoration and colour. A costume should correspond to all situations. Climate also had the influence on a costume character: there were clothes for different seasons”
“Every association organizes holidays in different way. I like energy, emotions and enthusiasm of Mongolian students. I think that Damdinsuren Sukhbaatar should be greatly appreciated as a concert organisator”, said Julia Kirilova, a responsible for cultural and mass activity at IIE&LC.
