Rap Music in Remote Mongolia. Awesome!
9 July 2013 | by RENEE SCHIBERSee all my reviews

When I saw the title Mongolian Bling on the schedule, I was instantly intrigued. Mongolia? Bling? The people of Genghis Khan going gangsta??? Hip-hop is not my favorite musical genre at all, but through World Music on WorldLink TV, I have seen that rap music has become a universal music form for the working poor and oppressed classes of people worldwide even as far a remote Mongolia. The urban squalor of the "hood" filled with temporary housing and yurts. There was alcoholism, domestic violence, women shaking their "moneymakers," guns and rap music. I have come to admire and enjoy the music of Quiza whom I have likened to Public Enemy's Chuck D, a man with meaningful music. I just wish I understood the language so that I could fully appreciate the film. One aspect of the film I really like was the connection between the music of the "bling" generation and more traditional Mongolian music. But mostly it's a film about people and community and family. I love it.
