HU! is a jazz sextet that challenges todays' unconscious gender biases and the fact that there are still so few female jazz instrumentalists (only 5% jazz instrumentalists are female). HU! plays with the traditional roles of musical instruments, transforms relatable situations from daily life into music and brings to the table (sometimes fragile) subjects with musical pieces like "High Pitched Voices Often Get Interrupted", "Jeans With Tiny Pockets and Toothpaste for Men", "Circlusion" and "Ballad For The Frozen Eggs." By using the power of music and humour, HU! is a friendly invitation to question our unconscious gender biases! Let's all be HU!
