Celebrate Mongolia with The HU
Rock band The HU invites global listeners to appreciate Mongolian culture with the release of “Bii Biyelgee – Acoustic.”
Biyelgee is a traditional form of Mongolian dancing. The band, from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, is dedicated to bringing the deserved attention to its home. In recent years, the group plans to plant 12,000 trees in Southeastern Mongolia to fight against rapid deforestation in the area.
The band’s important work even earned them the Artist for Peace award from UNESCO.
With “Bii Biyelgee – Acoustic” the HU created a feel-good song for the summer. It’s a fun track, which while keeping the band’s rock feel, continues to utilize traditional Mongolian instruments and sounds.
While acoustic often means slowing down a track or calming it down, The HU preserves the fun, bouncy energy of the original.
The song is not performed in English, but translated lyrics show the powerful songwriting featured in the track.
Until the rib land gets scraped
Until the knee land goes bare
By chanting and praising our ancestors
Let’s biy biyley day and night
