It’s a great example of the frequent collaborations various musicians are involved in here. I learned about Gennie over a year ago from talking with the director of Mongolian Bling (which just finished post-production!). He follows her throughout his documentary and recommended I get in touch. Gennie is one of the only female rappers in Mongolia.
I heard of the Royal Beat Crew a little over a month ago now. I’m told they incorporate khoomii (throat singing) into their beats, but not in a terribly substantial way. Still, a fun idea.
I still haven’t been able to figure out exactly who Persius is. An expat who came an went? A wayward traveler? Perhaps I’ll run into him this weekend?
