Afro Pop – Afro Jazz

Born in Maputo, the art and culture-rich capital of Mozambique, Albino Mbie has always felt the urge to blend music styles and incorporate diverse elements in his compositions. Even as a young musician, while studying Music Education & Performance, playing with a homemade guitar, he knew he needed to experience new places, cultures, and sounds to nurture his talents.

Albino got the opportunity to expand his musical horizons at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA. He now dedicates himself to experimenting with music, combining disparate entities into an organic whole, while retaining their unique, undiluted flavours.

He works on traditional rhythms, adding some of his life experiences gathered in the US and around the world. The result overlaps pleasingly to treat the audience ear with an original sound of Afro/Moz-Pop meeting Jazz and World Music. Imbued with worldly vibe, Mbie’s incredibly approachable music exudes sophistication, and yet simplicity.

Fuelled by the resourcefulness and determination that have always characterized Mozambicans, Albino is now recognised internationally as an award winning musician, guitarist, singer, composer, and sound engineer.
