Moyo Ray

The Hamburg singer-songwriter Moyo Ray touches her audience through her mellow and yet vibrant voice accompanied by her guitar, entering soundscapes between jazz and folk that reconcile the ease and severity of sound and human being. Her lyrics come alive by combining her feelings and thoughts through vivid metaphors of tangible ordinariness. Narratives of love and pain reflect on Ray’s experience as a young Black woman in nowadays world. Thus, she invites her listeners to an intimate journey throughout her own biography that has been formed by crises and detours as well as by the constant notion for a new beginning.

The music series is set up in the further course as jam, talk & cooking sessions continuing intimate and creative encounters in times of pandemic limitations effecting especially artists and performers. Musicians from Hamburg, from the African continent and diaspora are offered a platform to come together with other fellow artists, express their identities and beliefs and play music in person, but also to perform digitally to an audience. The artistic exchange will be deepened through a joining talk and collective cooking session. We hope that the sessions will develop to an evening of physical presence with an audience soon! The following sessions will be dropped in a monthly rhythm. So please, watch out & and stay connected!

Our big thanks go to all artists and the Ministry of Culture and Media Hamburg. Funded by Neustart Kultur, an initiative of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
