I’m not a fan of American rap music and I usually prefer the more traditional forms of Mongolian music (actually Tuvan Music but lets not complicate things). The two videos below are the exceptions. Consider it something different from last week’s politicering.
At first sniff, the “Hood,” by Vanquish comes across as a stereotypical rap music video. But the beat has a rare, very satisfying feel. The visuals are worth watching with its clips of what I think might be Ulan Bator‘s (called UB) gritty urban cityscapes. Architecture buffs though might prefer a focused overview of Mongolian architecture.
The next video by Esreg Odor is a delightfully sharp piece of social satire about a very human obsession – booze. Best watched than read.
The “Beyond the Golden Way” blog has a more insightful post on these videos which is worth checking out.
