I also enjoy exploring multi-genre music, where different genres intertwine.

Moving on from Kauan, a Band originating in Chelyabinsk, Russia and singing in Finnish.....

 

To The HU, a rock band hailing from Mongolia singing in Mongolian incorporating traditional music.

 

The band’s name The HU, is the Mongolian root word for human being. Influenced by rock bands such as Foo Fighters and Slipknot (I can't hear the Slipknot connection!), they call their style “Hunnu Rock”… inspired by the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire, known as The Huns in western culture.

Some of the band’s lyrics include old Mongolian war cries and poetry. The HU combines Rock Music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and distinctive traditional guttural throating singing.

Their first album is called The Gereg, the word Gereg was used as the first Diplomatic “Passport” by the Mongol empire during the time of Genghis Khan.

Thanks @Dave (OnliestSmeg) - Manchester AO

 

There is a certain "atmosphere" that I have really enjoyed with this and all the others you have posted.

 

Not sure I would listen to the music on its own but I have really enjoyed them all when combined with the video.

 

Already looking forward to the next one.
