Mozambican jazz-saxophonist, composer, and producer, Moreira Chonguiça is feted as one of the finest exponents of innovative and original jazz from Africa.
And his company Morestar Entertainment is delighted to announce the release of Moreira Chonguiça’s first single Hosi/King from his eagerly anticipated eighth album Sounds of Peace that is due on November 4th, 2022. The album explores the traditional influences of Mozambique with jazz.
The song, Hosi meaning King in Changana, pays homage to a higher power featuring Xindiro Compaghia de Canto e Dança with Alexandre Chilaúle and Arejústel Mulimela on vocals.
The work was Mixed and Mastered by Murray Anderson at Milestone Studios in Cape Town.
As an independent artist with seven award-winning, globally informed, and celebrated albums – he is blazing a trail from his east-African roots to the world.
Moreira’s energetic contemporary rhythmic compositions have garnered applauses across all six continents, exposed to and inspired by Miles Davis, Fela Kuti, Percy Sledge and Manu Dibango.
His unique sound, technical agility and ingenuity on the alto and soprano saxophone, coupled with passionate stage performance captivates audiences universally.
Moreira’s passion and drive to promote Mozambican culture and lifestyle through jazz has seen the production of his Morejazz Series festival since 2012 and the formation of the Morejazz Big Band in 2014 become permanent fixtures on the jazz landscape of Mozambique.
