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 grandchild, 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 hip-hop, 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. He has worked with artist from Tiesto to Prince Po, and fresh off his U.K. tour Moluba is hungrier than ever.
