Its Folk CulturesNomads, Mongolia's primary folk culture(half of the pop.), exist in the many plains of Mongolia. Nomads only have one art form, the long song. Nomads, unlike average Mongolians, wear American style clothes that are comfortable to work with animals.. Mongolians make simple dishes that are mainly meat with no spices. Nomads are not influenced by pop culture. They live away from city life, and only consern themselves with their animals. Nomads regularly move so they never get influenced by other people's culture.

Pop Culture InfluencesMongolians stick to a traditional way of life. The only fast food they have is sold in the largest city, and is American. Mongolians make a lot of art, especially, if it relates to their religion. They also make a lot of musical instruments. They wear traditional clothing. Both men and women wear a del, a silk wrap.
