Mosno Al-Moseeki; an artist out of the Baltimore area, a native of Sudan, and a musical force to be reckoned with.
Mosno is a name I first heard during my conversation with my old Web friend, Kevin Johnson Jr. Kevin was updating me on upcoming projects (he’s The Narrator for Mosno’s upcoming Novella), informing me of musicians I might interview for my podcast and, of course, directing me to sources for excellent music.
The influences of Mosno’s home country are clear in both lyric and rhythm, refreshingly meshed with sounds both Western and that which rises above culture and genre.

Turning forward, we can anticipate Novella, a three-years in the works concept album. Novella is inspired by Mosno’s own migration from Sudan to Baltimore, but it speaks to the migratory experience we all share when moving from world to world. Check out a piece of the album right now, with Shukran My Totem:

Novella is not yet complete, however. If you want to be a part of the making of the new album, head on over to the Novella project page to see how you can help. Mosno has a video that further explains just what the album is about and has plenty of goodies available for those who want to join in.
