They're a Beijing-based band, so some of their titles are in Mandarin, even if the lyrics are in Mongolian. They also go by the Latinized "Hanggai" and the Cyrillicized "Ханггай"

Oh, OK. Are you okay with me including it in the list under its English name as used in the YouTube video? That might not be an official name or anything, but still, I just figure most people here can't read Chinese.

What happened? And my song is in Marathi! The actual song is a Marathi song; it's just that the video has English subs on the bottom.

What happened is that you submitted a song in English earlier in this contest, but then you submitted another one in Marathi (in this same contest).

So what I need to know is: Which one is your nomination for this contest?

Oh fuck! Sorry, I totally forgot that I submitted one in English, hence the Marathi one! :oops: :oops:

In that case, let's go with the first one I submitted. I'll reserve the Marathi one for the next FSC.
