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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
