Mokoomba was born at the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, where the Zambezi River meets the legendary Victoria Falls. Raised within the Tonga people’s culture, the six band’s musicians fed themselves with all those influences to create a unique musical world. Guided by the exceptional voice of the singer and percussionist Mathias Muzaza, Mokoomba spread its dancing and communicative afro-fusion with an outstanding energy. Mokoomba lives, breathes and literally explodes on stage. In 2008, Mokoomba won the Southern-Africa Music Crossroads festival which gathers the best young bands of Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
By entrusting the ivorian bassist-singer-producer Manou Gallo, the artictis production of its CD, Mokoomba found the perfect match to its evolution. A collaboration and a dialogue between Africans open to the world but also aware of the richness of their traditions.
« Rising Tide », it’s 12 songs for a surprising and explosive musical travel through Southern Africa.
