Yet another Mongolian throat-singing hip-hop duo

Posted By on Mon, Aug 6, 2007 at 11:44 AM

I was having lunch at Pizza-Rama, a Mongolian place in Oakland the other day, and noticed a flyer for a Black Rose concert at Kimball's Carnival. Google tracked down a BBC story that says their music "combines traditional Mongolian music with rap, house and hip-hop." I also found a UB Post (Mongolian English-language daily) story that describes them as a "'hip-hop techno' male duo, famous for their dancing, nationalistic song lyrics and sometimes outrageous clothes and hair styles."

Except for the names of the band and venue, the poster was entirely in Mongolian, so I phoned Kimball's and asked about the date: they said August 10.
