The band is involved in the film“THE RETALIATORS”, a high-octane horror-thriller, starring Michael Lombardi (FX’s “Rescue Me”), Marc Menchaca (“Ozark, The Outsider”) and Joseph Gatt(“Dumbo”) with special guest appearances by some of rock music’s biggest names. THE HU‘s Jaya plays a small part in the movie and the band contributed their hit track “Wolf Totem” featuring Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach) to the soundtrack.
Formed in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, The HU achieved global recognition with powerful videos that have amassed over 95 million views to date. “Wolf Totem”, “Yuve Yuve Yu” and “The Great Chingiss Khan” showcase the band’s one-of-a-kind style of ‘hunnu rock’ – a combination of Western heavy rock played with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and guttural throat singing in their native language.
The band has achieved wide critical acclaim and appeared on many 2019 year-end best-of lists.
