Read some early critical praise for THE HU:
"[The HU] are not just taking elements from Western music… Instead, they're using some of these elements and making their own authentic music. So it's not rock music performed by Mongolians. It's Mongolian rock music."- January 5, 2019
"You know when you find an artist you're so enraptured and excited about that you want to tell anyone and everyone who'll listen about them? That's how I feel right now about The HU." - June 7, 2019
"Hunnu rock has undoubtedly captured a global audience, spreading their transcultural sound across borders." - May 27, 2019
"The Hu is the first act since Bad Wolves in February 2018 to top Hard Rock Digital Song Sales with its first charting song." - April 18, 2019
"The HU wound up with nine cinematic songs that seamlessly meld their influences, often highlighting the areas where the two overlap… Given the global platform they earned via YouTube, The HU have an entire nation rooting for them with The Gereg." - August 5, 2019

ABOUT THE HU:
Gala: Lead Throat Singer and Morin Khuur
Enkush: Lead Morin Khuur and Throat Singer
Jaya: Jaw Harp, Tsuur, Flute, and Throat Singer
Temka: Tovshuur

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.
