"CD Reviews - Loud Oasis by MoMo Loudiyi"

MoMo Loudiyi is a welcome entity in the Los Angeles sacred music community. Yogis often find MoMo playing an assortment of creative guitars from all over the world or just providing musical support for anyone who is putting out the good word with love and respect. MoMo is a Moroccan guitarist and singer-songwriter who is influenced by a wide-ranging variety of musical traditions that reflect the festive nature of the sacred throughout the Middle East.

This album was recorded in Marrakech, Fes, Essaouira, Casablanca, Tangiers and Mohammedia – in addition to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York. The diversity of these locations is a metaphor for the musical interests and the unconditional nature of using music to provide an occasion for kindness, gratitude and celebration. The album begins with an energetic piece titled “Lawlaka” which translates to “Without You” in English and just as the heart and soul dances with the rhythms of life, MoMo’s music moves its listeners with emotional depth and culturally abundant artistic integrity.

The album features eleven tracks that are superbly produced and performed by MoMo. Every offering contains an energy that is collective and infectious. There are songs that sound influenced by Paul Simon as well as Ömer Faruk Tekbilek. This makes Loud Oasis such a special album as MoMo handles the transitions from musical styles beautifully and that is very difficult to pull off. MoMo plays with an extraordinary band of musicians who fuse sacred Sufi traditions as well popular Moroccan and Western melodies with confidence and authentic skill that cross boundaries. This team of artists who love music has a heartfelt ability to make listeners smile and celebrate the beautiful world that is life.

I highly recommend [to] any one who enjoys world music that connects a variety of traditions with symmetry and skill. loudoasis.com. –– Reviewed by Michael R. Mollura - LA Yoga Magazine

Bio

"Having lived in Morocco and France and traveled extensively before settling in Los Angeles, Momo Loudiyi is an important influence on the sacred music and Kirtan community that continues to grow and develop in the city of Angels." - LA Examiner, February 2010.

Producer, guitarist and songwriter MoMo Loudiyi is currently working on several exciting musical collaborations in various genres in Los Angeles.
Having shared large stages playing rock and jazz guitar at major venues such as The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Le Lido and UNESCO in Paris, MoMo is known for his refined, sensitive touch, bold rhythms and improvisational virtuosity in many genres and instruments. Two years ago, MoMo returned to Morocco to begin a magical project called Loud Oasis. From the early stages of recording, Loud Oasis was envisioned using a wide range of instrumentation and languages, to make connections across musical genres and cultures. This range, which MoMo refers to not as fusion but as total expression, gives the listener the freedom to experience music in a new, healing way. It has been said that MoMo's fearless approach paints a musical canvas, opening a channel to Spirit that is a direct and personal expression of love.

"Superbly produced and performed...with a collective and infectious energy" according to LA Yoga magazine, the Loud Oasis debut album was recorded throughout Morocco, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, and features over 40 talented musicians from several continents.
