His songs are largely inspired by African sounds and crazy, danceable beats, outlined Afro Trap-anthems like ‘La Puissance’ and is currently one of the biggest rappers in France. MHD released his latest record 19 this past September 2018 featuring guest appearances from Stromae, Stefflon Don, Diplo and afro-pop legend Salif Keita among others.
Moluba, is a Liberian American artist by way of Silver Spring, Maryland. His name was given to him by his great grandmother on her arrival to the U.S. from Liberia, when she escaped the civil war that had plagued the country most of Moluba’s young life. Being the eldest grand child, he was given the name of the patriarch of the family, his great grandfather. Moving with the spirit of his ancestors, Moluba comes with a diverse and gripping sound that mixes hiphop, jazz, spiritualism, and soul into a gumbo of genre bending magic. Heavily influenced by his jazz trumpet background, and greats such as Bob Marley, Tupac Shakur, Miles Davis, and Lauren Hill, Moluba is an act you definitely don’t want to miss.
