Today I am grateful for the opportunity I had to see The Hu for ACL 2021 🤘

I am looking forward to picking Vikings back up with Brian 🪓

@drewcastillo Are they inspired by Huun Huur Tu, or are there members thereof in The Hu, do you know?

@odd good question! I looked up Huun-Huur-Tu, they incorporate traditional Mongolian instrumentation and throat singing, but are from Russia (Tuva). The Hu formed over 20 years later in Ulaanbaatar, but most assuredly were helped by HHT's presence!

@drewcastillo Thanks! Yeah, I thought they looked a bit younger. Anyway, I will have to watch the performance in its entirety later! Yat-Kha, also from Tuva, I believe are more rock-oriented than HHT. Chirgilchin maybe something in between.
