‘Yuve Yuve Yu’ – The Hu

Give it a minute to get going.

The tradcore stylings of Mongolian metallers The Hu Band, who combine Western rock played on traditional instruments like the horsehead fiddle [morin khuur], Jew’s Harp [tumin khuur] and Mongolian guitar [tovshuur]) with Tuvan throat singing.

Mmm. Pitchy.

    If ye like them – check out Tengger cavalry – they’re more metal & have plenty of tuvan throat singing too

    I would have thought broadsheet would have come up with a less problematic name for the instrument than Jews’s Harp

    I like the sound off the Catholic’s Harmonica and the Buddhists’s Theremin myself. But that’s just me.

    If you like this kind of thing (and I do) there is a page on FB called Mongolia Live which often features music videos with plenty of throat singing.
