Mongolian rock sensation THE HU, who released their debut album THE GEREG via Better Noise Music back in September, are touring throughout Europe early next year. Many of these dates taking place across the UK and Europe in January and February 2020 have now sold out, with tickets selling fast for the remaining dates.
Having achieved phenomenal success with three videos that combined have over 45 million views to date—”Wolf Totem” and “Yuve Yuve Yu” and the latest, “The Great Chinggis Khaan”—the band garnered viral success and also have achieved international critical acclaim.
They’ve also got themselves a famous fan with Elton John recently playing them and raving about the band on his Rocket Hour, Beats 1 radio show. Playing ‘Yuve Yuve Yu’ Elton commented, “You know I’m crazy about a Mongolian band called The Hu – it’s just the greatest new thing I’ve heard in a long-time, they use traditional Mongolian instruments… it’s absolutely fantastic.”
THE HU stands for the Mongolian root word for human being, inspiring their original style of music that they call “Hunnu Rock.” The band pull Inspiration from the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire better known as The Huns in western culture. Their music is deeply embedded with their ancient culture, even integrating old Mongolian war cries and poetry into their lyrics.
The group was founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with band members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush. Together they create rock music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throat singing built around the pillars of heavy rock: distorted guitars, bombastic drums, and aggressive rhythms. All four members have earned Bachelor’s or higher degrees in classical music and have gained several years of touring experience throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim.
