“When we do this, we try to spiritually express this beautiful thing about Mongolian music. We think we will talk to everyone’s soul though our music.” – Temka, band member
The four-piece band combines traditional Mongolian instruments with modern American hard rock to create their own genre of music they call “hunnu rock,” which derives from “HU,” the Mongolian root word for human beings. Hunnu Rock is a combination of Mongolian traditional music and western rock music. The genre is very dynamic it can be metal, but it can also be classic rock. The most unique thing about their style is the Mongolian throat singing, which is an amazing sound that humans make which creates the upper and lower harmony together.
The HU will be making their European live debut from this June, for a run of summer festivals and tour dates. They play Sama’Rock Festival andEurockeennes De Belfort Festival (France), Download Festival (UK), Tons of Rock Festival (Norway) and GraspopFestival (Belgium), plus UK performances in Brighton, Manchester, Bristol, Glasgow and London(amongst others. First time shows in London, Manchester, Warsaw and Amsterdam are already sold out!
