The HU is a band from Mongolia that blends heavy metal and 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. Their first two videos immediately went viral garnering the band over 50 million views. 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. Since the formation of the band in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, they’ve been working on their first album, “The Gereg” which was released in September 2019.
