The Albino Mbie Trio 

Live performances September 6, 7, and 8, 2022

World Artists Experiences (WAE), in partnership with the Embassy of Mozambique, presents three live performances of The Albino Mbie Trio at the following locations:

September 6, 2022, 6:30 pm: Salisbury University, on the lawn; 101 Camden St, Salisbury, MD

Albino Mbie is a multi-award-winning musician, guitarist, singer, composer, and producer from Maputo, Mozambique, currently based in Boston, Massachusetts. Mozambique is a southern African country known for its rich musical and cultural heritage. Mbie built his first guitar from a 5 liter can of oil, scrap wood, and electric cords at the tender age of 14. Drawn to the street music of his native Maputo, Mbie soon started playing with bands in the local scene.

Mbie’s music succeeds in combining many disparate parts into an organic whole. It incorporates his musical experiences from Mozambique, the U.S., and many other places around the world, combining rhythmic patterns and musical concepts to create a unique Marrabenta, Nikatche, Afro-Pop and Moz-Jazz sound.

Mr. Mbie studied music at the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane in Mozambique and the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He is an active touring musician who has shared the stage with Godfathers of American jazz such as Wayne Shorter, Joe Lovano, John Patitucci and others as well as African giants such as Richard Bona, Jimmy Dludlu, Mulato Astatke and others.
