MANSFIELD, OH - The Hu, a Mongolian folk-rock and heavy metal band, will play at the Inkcarceration Festival on Friday, September 10, 2021, at the Ohio State Reformatory.
The Hu, hailing from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, combines heavy metal music and Mongolian signature throat singing to create a unique genre they called "hunnu rock", an ancient Mongol/Turkic empire known as Xiongnu (Hunnu) in western culture. They incorporate Mongolian war cries and poetry in their music lyrics and use traditional Mongolian music instruments like Morin Khuur, Tovshuur, Tumur Khuur, and Tsuur.
Since their inception in 2016, The Hu has released an album titled The Gereg, consisted of 9 songs including their lead single “Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem” which was released on September 13, 2019. The Gereg is named after Gerege or paizi, a diplomatic document carried by Mongolian nobles used for travel during Genghis Khan’s era.
The Hu gained further international recognition for their song titled "Black Thunder"/"Sugaan Essena" a song created specifically for their collaboration with the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in November 2019.
The band consisted of four Mongolians Galbadrakh "Gala" Tsendbaatar, Nyamjantsan "Jaya" Galsanjamts, Enkhsaikhan "Enkush" Batjargal, and Temuulen "Temka" Naranbaatar. All of their songs are produced and written by B. Dashdondog "Dashka" who is also the founder of The Hu.
