Albino Mbie has been invited to host his post CD release party
for Mozambique Dance at Ryles Jazz club this Wednesday!
Mbie's music incorporates the music from Mozambique, rooted American
Jazz influences and experiences with music from the world over, to blend diverse
rhythmic patterns and musical concepts, creating a unique Moz-Jazz sound only
found in his own original musical style. Now, with his just-released debut CD
featuring his original title track, recorded on Jazz Revelation Records, a Berklee
College of Music student-run label, for their 8th annual album in 2011 including
his original Awusiwana, from the Berklee College of Music 2012
summer album, he brings it to life in his live performance.
Albino Mbie was born in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, a
country in southern Africa known for its rich musical and cultural heritage.
Fueled by the resourcefulness and determination that have always characterized
Mozambicans, he built his first guitar at 16 from a 5-liter can of oil, scrap
wood, and strings made out of electrical cords. An active musician, Albino Mbie
performs throughout the US, Africa, Europe and Mexico and has produced and recorded
multiple projects in both Mozambique and the United States.
Beginning his studies at Universidade Eduardo Mondlane in Mozambique,
he made his way to the celebrated Berklee School of Music. Mbie became among
the first students to receive a full scholarship to Berklee the prestigious
African Scholars program.Soon after, Mbie was one of the first students to receive
a full scholarship to Berklee through the African Scholars program in 2009.
Feeling the absence of his familiar Mozambican music and its deep traditions,
Albino with the help of his mentors, renown African musicians Richard Bona and
Lionel Loueke, he began to bridge that gap.
