Who is Mose?
"Great music is that which carries the present minded listener to the doorstep of infinity."
Mose is based in Guatemala on the beautiful volcanic crater lake of Atitlán where cacao ceremonies, kirtan, and ecstatic dance have had a major influence on his productions and DJ style. It is here that he founded weekly cacao dances where members of the community have the opportunity to journey deep into dance in a container of deep intention, free of alcohol.
Having been nomadic since 2011, he has developed a sound all his own through interaction with cultures from around the globe. When he is not touring the world or playing these special events in Guatemala, he spends his time going into extended periods of retreat and silence, only to emerge with a deeper, truer and more refined sound.
Beyond the multicultural rhythms and the steady hypnotic beat, Mose weaves ephemeral chanting of sacred songs and calls to love, kindness and compassion, often bringing in live musicians to create something beautiful and timeless. There is a universal element to his organic sound that appeals to a wide range of audiences, from the relaxed chill out space to the dance floor.
