Forget about nomads and monks! It’s hip hop that’s making Mongolia move in the 21st century. Mongolian Bling jumps into the thriving music scene in the capital, Ulaanbaatar alongside stars rapping nationwide with their bitches, cars, and jewels. But beyond this bling lies a tattered democracy and a dying ancient culture that the elders mourn the loss of. While many artists still aspire to the West, a handful are using hip hop to try and salvage their country’s sense of identity and are bringing Mongolia’s unique musical heritage into their modern beats and rhymes.
