DòngTīng Song of the Week



This week's song comes from Urumqi rap crew Six City. "Biquara-Tuhmat" or "Pity - Blame" is a song about misplaced condemnation and the distress it causes. Six City's musical influences include heavy metal, R&B, traditional Uyghur music, American rapper Eminem, Turkish rapper Ceza, and Thai rap. One of their main goals is to represent the reality of life in Xinjiang today and promote Uyghur culture.
