The HU is a band from Mongolia that blends heavy metal and traditional Mongolian throat singing. Their first two videos ('Yuve Yuve Yu" and 'Wolf Totem") immediately went viral garnering the band over 18 million views. The explosive reaction to The HU resulted in a number of features about the band in international media such as NPR, ET India Times, Playboy Mexico, Jack Canal+Fr, Hong Kong 01, DW News Germany and others.

The band's name The HU, is the Mongolian root word for human being. They call their style "Hunnu Rock" inspired by the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire, known as The Huns in western culture. Some of the band's lyrics include old Mongolian war cries and poetry.

Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with the members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush. The HU combines Rock Music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throating singing and the bombastic bass and drums of rock. All four members have earned Bachelor's or higher degrees in music and have several years of touring experience throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim.

Since the formation of the band, they've been working on their first album, The Gereg. The word Gereg was used as the first diplomatic passport by the Mongol empire during the time of Genghis Khan. The album contains nine songs including the recently released 'Yuve Yuve Yu' and 'Wolf Totem', and is slated for release in 2019 on Eleven Seven Music.

The HU will embark on a world-wide tour in support of their debut album. All live performance bookings are handled by WME, and their show is not to be missed.

Bandmembers:

Gala: Lead Throat Singer and Morin Khuur

Enkush: Lead Morin Khuur and Throat Singer

Jaya: Jaw Harp, Tsuur, Flute, and Throat Singer

The album's title, The Gereg, takes its name from the term used for the first diplomatic 'passport' issued by the Mongol Empire during the time of Genghis Khan. The band's logo and image on The Gereg album cover is of a snow leopard. In Mongolia the snow leopard is very crucial to Mongol Tribes, worship Tengri (Heaven), Moon and Sun and embodies the image of the Snow Leopard. The singular horn represents the band's uniqueness, there is only one The HU.

'When we do this, we try to spiritually express this beautiful thing about Mongolian music. We think we will talk to everyone's soul though our music.' - Temka, band member

The four-piece band combines traditional Mongolian instruments with modern American hard rock to create their own genre of music they call 'hunnu rock,' which derives from 'HU,' the Mongolian root word for human beings. Hunnu Rock is a combination of Mongolian traditional music and western rock music. The genre is very dynamic it can be metal, but it can also be classic rock. The most unique thing about their style is the Mongolian throat singing, which is an amazing sound that humans make which creates the upper and lower harmony together.
