In 2023 Mo also launched his most exciting personal music project yet:
Together with long time collaborator and friend B Munro they formed the duo KAMOBii in 2022 and launched in spring of 2023: retro-futuristic, Psychedelic Soul, Electronica and R&B with world-music influences and cinematic textures. COLOURS is KAMOBii’s first ’sonic trip‘:
9 minutes long, over 2 years and 500+ hours in the making, using a wide range of instruments & sounds with the help of musicians from Jacob Collier, Incognito & Emeli Sandé – and finally, a whopping 796 audio tracks lovingly mixed & mastered to analog tape. COLOURS is an inner journey and was the experimental playground and catalyst for KAMOBii.
Originally rooted in classic Soul, Funk, Reggae, Gospel & Classical, Mo’s inspirations as now Ibiza based producer found him seamlessly swerving genres and sonic worlds including R&B, Electronica, Lofi HipHop and Future Bass. A multi-instrumentalist and seasoned string arranger, Mo also frequently incorporates world music, ethereal and cinematic flavours.
Mo’s life story is almost as eclectic as his musical background: Hailing from Hamburg (Germany), growing up in Eswatini (southern Africa) before living in London for over 10 years – Mo is now based in Ibiza, Spain with his wife Sahar and two young daughters Nouria and Cyra.
A firm believer in giving back, Mo has produced official videos and has been an ambassador for SOS Children’s Villages ‘World Orphan Weeks’ and continues to support his parents’ own charity organisation EDGET – Live, Love & Learn in Ethiopia.
Mo is also a sought-after vocal coach and frequently organises holistic vocal workshops live and on Zoom, where he helps people discover or develop their voice and shares holistic tools including meditation, breathwork, mindfulness and yoga.
