Backstory

 

Born in Maputo, the art and culture-rich capital of Mozambique, Albino Mbie is an multi award-winning musician, guitarist, singer, composer, and sound engineer. Fueled by the resourcefulness and determination that have always characterized Mozambicans, Mbie built his first guitar from a 5 liter can of oil, scrap wood, and electric cords -- at the tender age of 16. Drawn to the street music of his native Maputo, Mbie soon started playing with bands in the local scene.

 

About

 

Albino Mbie makes music that aims to combine disparate entities into an organic whole while retaining their unique, undiluted flavors -- the music of his native Mozambique, coupled with his experiences living in the US and traveling to many other places in the world, overlap pleasingly to treat the audience ear with an original sound of Afro-pop meets Moz-Jazz. Imbued with a worldly vibe, Mbie’s incredibly approachable music exudes sophistication, and yet simplicity.

 

 

The album received critical acclaim and the following titles:

  

-First place, International Songwriting Competition 2013, World Music (USA) category

-Nominated for Boston international artist of the year of 2018(Boston Music Awards)

-Revelation prize of the year 2013/14, Ngoma Mozambique  

-Best Upcoming African Artist nomination 2014, Radio France International (RFI)

 

Other accolades that have recently been bestowed upon Mbie include:

-Finalist for single Where You Come From, John Lennon Songwriting Competition 2016

-3rd Place for co-write with Isabel Novela, International Songwriting Competition 2016, World Music (USA)
