Momo Loudiyi is a world performing artist, producer and singer/songwriter whose music ties together many cultures and expressions into a multi-dimensional celebration of life.
Based in Los Angeles, MoMo has won over many hearts with his openness in musical expression and musical versatility that dissolves all boundaries of genre.
You will see him in concert, collaborating with internationally renowned musicians from Rock to Jazz, to conscious music, to Ethnic World music – West African to Persian, Ethiopian, Reggae and more. You’ll hear his sound landscapes in TV and film, and his magical, organic live music for yoga at workshops and retreats with the world’s leading yoga teachers.
But the real treat is seeing MoMo’s live show with his Moroccan World Pop Band, a soaring blend of uplifting Moroccan rhythms, entrancing melodies, and contemporary sonic layers. His exotic voice and delicate playing of the Moroccan Sintir that invokes his Ancestors is compelling, highly danceable and good medicine for body and soul.

Loud Oasis features more than 40 world-class musicians and is available at major online retailers including iTunes and Amazon, at www.momoloudiyi.bandcamp.com and at www.loudoasis.com.
Cost: Free and open to the public.
