Gambian virtuoso Mosi creates music that excites and delights.

We griots are born in music, every family plays together. Music is our life

The celebration of his heritage and affinity for London shines through, steeped in tradition with a global sonic-awareness. His debut-album ‘Kaira Kora Afrika’ walked off  with glowing reviews and global airplay. Triumphs include appearances at  Royal Albert Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall,  Royal Festival Hall;  major festivals Womad and the Secret Garden; wondrous collaborations like Africa Express’ In C Mali,  PRSF’s NewMusic-Biennale,  Coltrane: A Love Supreme Re-envisioned and In Place of War.

Renowned for his creative sparkling kora and speed of light intuitive djembe, check him out on bolon-bata (a goatskin-covered calabash which more than equals a major double bass in his hands), on donso-ngoni (hunters’-bass), on kamelon-ngoni (griot’s-bass), on balafon, guitar, gongoma (large calabash thumb-piano) and traditional percussion instruments too many to mention.
