Who are The Hu? Experience Mongolian rockers at the Grog Shop

Are you getting enough Mongolian rock in your audio diet?

You aren’t, are you?

It’s OK — it happens to a lot of us.

But we can all start to change that by checking out The Hu on Sept. 17 at the Grog Shop in Cleveland Heights, the fifth stop on the band’s just-about-to-start tour that will see them criss-cross this great land of ours into early December.

Hey, maybe you DO know The Hu, if you’re one of the many’s who’ve experienced what they have to offer — which is pretty infectious, if unusual, by the way — online.

From a news release sent by the tour’s publicist:

Having gone viral across the globe with over 40 million views on their debut video singles “Wolf Totem” and “Yuve Yuve Yu), Mongolian sensation THE HU will share their one-of-a-kind style of ‘hunnu rock’- a combination of traditional Mongolian instrumentation & guttural throat singing with Western heavy rock- to North American audiences this fall from September 11 to December 7.

The Hu is just about to release its debut album; “The Gereg” will feature nine tracks combining new and old Eastern and Western music stylings sung in their birth language showcasing their ancient culture, and even integrating old Mongolian war cries and poetry into their lyrics, the release states.

“Most of all, our songs are telling people, ‘Be strong,’ because we believe that every person has a warrior in her or in him,” says the band in the release. “We’d like to wake that warrior up to have the courage to stand against injustices in this world and stand together… to do something good for the world.”
