Khulan Bayasgalan


Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Khulan Bayasgalan, AKA Hulan is a rapper from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia who uses her craft to speak out against social issues. An advocate for female artists, Hulan was introduced to Hip Hop by her older brother when it became popular in Mongolia in the 2000’s, and was compelled by Hip Hop artists who spoke out about life, struggles, and social issues. Her dream is to have an artists’ collective run by women where they can be creative, make music, and collaborate in a space where their struggles are understood and they don’t have to choose between artistry and personal lives or motherhood. In 2022, Hulan participated in the online edition of Next Level, a Hip Hop residency for performers from around the world.
