Forget about nomads and monks, it's hip hop that's making Mongolia move in the 21st century! Mongolian Bling jumps into the thriving music scene in the capital; Ulaanbaatar, and delves into traditions, history, western influence, music, culture and the search for identity of the country’s youth.

“What does it mean to be Mongolian in the 21st Century?” This is the question explored through the personal stories of Gennie, the country’s first female rapper who is creating her debut album, Quiza, a rap superstar who is blending traditional music with hip hop,and Gee, an emerging gangster rapper from the slums of the capital, Ulaanbaatar. We also meet a colourful supporting cast including a shaman, a music professor, traditional musicians, a retired Socialist music censor and Mongolians living both rural and urbanised lives. Together they paint a picture of modern Mongolia and how hip hop and western culture is influencing their ancient lifestyle.
