Mongolian Bling (Mongolia, 2010)

Directed by: Benj Binks

Synopsis: Mongolian Bling – Adventures in Nomadic Hip Hop – follows hip hop’s journey into the ancient Mongolian culture and reveals a world of youth searching for identity through beats and rhymes.

Mongolian Bling jumps into the thriving music scene in the capital, Ulaanbaatar, and follows stars as they rap nationwide with their bitches, cars, and jewels. But beyond this bling lies a failed 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 failing democracy, and bringing Mongolia’s rich musical history into their modern beats and rhymes.
