Drawing inspirations from artists such as Childish Gambino, Quincy Jones & Kanye West, as well the cinematic soundscapes and scores from composers like Ludwig Göransson & John Williams - 25 year old Mopiano takes the definition of DIY as a serious matter; he writes and produces his own music. Born Muhamed Conta in south of Stockholm, Sweden and with roots from Gambia in West Africa.
“Mopiano’s early music inspiration comes from the family. His uncle recorded reggae in The Gambia and collaborated on Dr. Alban’s Hello Africa – a song that launched Alban’s musical career and saw him rise to godlike status among 1990s euro-dance fans. His journey started around 12 or 13, when his Dad bought him a synth to fool around with” ~ Cortega (PAM Magazine)
