by The Hu
$19.99

Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, the HU members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush are a Mongolian rock group - that became an online sensation when they released music videos for “Wolf Totem” and “Yuve Yuve Yu”, racking up a combined 32 million views to date.

The album's title, The Gereg, takes its name from the term used for the first diplomatic “passport” issued by the Mongol Empire during the time of Genghis Khan.

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.
