Mo Rockin Project at Utunes Coffee House
This group of North African and American musicians exchange cultures and creativity in an effort to dispel inaccurate beliefs and create world community.  This music was handcrafted from traditional Moroccan melodies, and is a satisfying blend of these melodies with American jazz and blues.

This music was handcrafted from traditional Moroccan melodies, and with striking musicianship, salient vision, and immeasurable spirit, celebrates the creative confluence that is Mo'Rockin Project. The music is alluring, lyrical, creative, funky, spirited and spiritual. With compatible musical minds and a need to create community, Mo'Rockin Project has taken on a life of its own.

The instant juxtaposition of multicultural melodic themes perched on the edge of inclusion... there is no musical territory uncharted no space unexplored.
Powerfully orchestrated horns, funky percussion and deep bass grooves lay ground for a musical exploration highlighting trumpet, oud, violin guitar, sax, keytar and vocal lines embodying the best of Miles and MoTown, of Nusrat and Farka Toure , Spinning the globe from North Africa to North America, (even riffing on a Stephen Foster tune), bridging the cultural chasm and challenging us to listen more carefully. In other words a truly original mix.
