Mongolian rockers The Hu are coming to Rock City on 1st December 2022!
Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, The HU, comprised of producer Dashka along with members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush, are a modern rock group rooted in the tradition of their homeland. 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. Their debut album, The Gereg, debuted at #1 on the World Album and Top New Artist Charts. They have accumulated over 250 million combined streams and video views and have received critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, NPR, Revolver, Vice, GQ, and even Sir Elton John himself. Proving their global appeal, the HU have sold out venues across the world in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, with scheduled festival appearances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Download Festival, and more, creating a community of fans from all walks of life. They’ve quickly grabbed the attention of the industry, leading to collaborations with Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm, and Metallica, who most recently gave the band’s Mongolian rendition of their hit, “Sad But True,” the official seal of approval. The band has also explored eclectic ways to reach audiences with their sound, most notably writing and recording music for EA Games’ Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
