Music for the Weekend: Mamer and Iz

Mamer is a Kazakh musician born in the Xinjiang province of Western China, and primarily residing in Beijing. His first album was fairly recognizable, if exceptional, world music. With his second album he became more experimental, mixing traditional Kazakh rhythms with experimental industrial music, prominently taking inspiration from Einsturzende Neubauten. Below is a song I recorded at the release party for his second CD in Beijing, followed by a televised recording of his earlier work.
