The four-piece band combines traditional Mongolian instruments with modern American hard rock to create their own style of music they call “hunnu rock,” which derives from “HU,” the Mongolian root word for human beings. This unique sound blends heavy rock elements with traditional Mongolian guttural throat singing, accentuated by lyrics reflecting old Mongolian war cries and poetry.

The HU became an online sensation when they released music videos for “Wolf Totem” and “Yuve Yuve Yu” in December 2018, racking up a combined 24 million views to date. They, re-released the singles on March 29, generating incredible global recognition across the globe. The track, “Wolf Totem” reached Top 5 on the iTunes Rock Chart and was featured as the #1 song on 19 different charts, while “Yuve Yuve Yu” reached #2 on 11 different charts across the globe. Both tracks are available digitally HERE.

In April, the band were offered Official Mongolian Ambassador to the World by the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Mongolia, whilst he congratulated them on their success. The HU also celebrate their signing to E7M (Eleven Seven Music) – home toMötley Crüe, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach and Nothing More.Eleven Seven’s COO, Steve Kline said about the signing, “Eleven Seven is continuously searching for unique and talented artists.  The Hu’s mix of traditional Mongolian instrumentation and original brand of rock is unlike any other band. From first listen, we were immediately blown away.  The Hu are about to take the world by storm, and we could not be more excited to welcome them to the Eleven Seven family!”The HU said, “We couldn’t be more excited to join the amazing team at E7M.  The passion they have for The HU can be felt from New York to Mongolia and we’re excited to do great things together.”

THE HU:

Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, the HU members Gala, JayaTemka, and Enkush, with their producer, Dashka, combine the bombastic bass and drums of rock music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and guttural throating singing. Since the formation of the band, they’ve been working on their first album, The Gereg. The term Gereg means the first diplomatic “passport” issued by the Mongol Empire during the time of Genghis Khan. The album contains nine songs, including the recently released “Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem,” and is slated for release in 2019 on Eleven Seven Music.
