The Hu’s sound can be described as a wild and ferocious mélange of traditional Mongolian music and modern rock. Imagine the throaty guttural vocals of Genghis Khan paired with the shredding guitar solos of Jimmy Page and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Their concerts are a nonstop feast of sonic and visual spectacle, with the band decked out in traditional Mongolian garb and performing intricately choreographed dances on stage. It’s like a heavy metal version of “Riverdance,” except with more horses and less leprechauns.

If you’re a fan of unique and high-energy music, The Hu is definitely a band you won’t want to miss.


My Dirty Life and Times

Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, THE HU, Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush are a modern rock group rooted in the tradition of their homeland. The band’s two most popular videos, “Yuve Yuve” and “Wolf Totem,” were produced by the band’s producer Dashka. 

The band’s name translates to the Mongolian root word for human being, and their unique approach blends instruments like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), and throat singing with contemporary sounds, creating a unique sonic profile that they call “Hunnu Rock.”
