Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Video: The HU

The HU is a band from Mongolia that blends heavy metal and traditional Mongolian throat singing. The band’s name 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. Some of the band’s lyrics include old Mongolian war cries and poetry.  

Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with the members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush, The HU performs Rock music on traditional Mongolian instruments like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), and Tumur Khuur (jaw harp). These instruments, along with their guttural throat singing and bombastic bass and drums, create a powerful other-worldly sound experienced against the majestic mountains and plains of Mongolia.
