Mo Boma

Mo Boma

The duo known as Mo Boma (named after a pygmy girl's lullaby), is comprised of Carsten Tiedemann, a native of Germany, and Skuli Sverrisson, of Iceland, both of whom attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. Tiedemann's studies in classical composition structures and ethnic music traditions feature prominently in Mo Boma's style, which uses electronic music to create a ethereal, multi-textured sound that builds around Sverrisson's electric bass core. Sverrisson's own experience as a jazz bassist and improvisational musician also makes a major impact on Mo Boma's sound.

This is a must have collection for anyone who likes really moody,poly-rhythmic fourth world music. The atmosphere these three wizards conjure up is a blend of semi synthesized ambient music with third world instrumentation and odd samples thrown into the mix for good measure.
Think of this in layman's terms of the debut album from Deep Forest kicked up10x notches without he dance culture influence.
Jamshied's keyboard work is amazingly supportive without the music feeling like its keyboard dominated(theres NO piano or organ licks mainly pads and melodic phrasing) and Skuli's bass is so well mixed into the music you wont even realize what you have been listening to on many tracks is his actual bass playing odd chords and melodies.
These are all recordings that will stand the testament of time and truly forward thinking music!
