What would be a rain without drops? What would be a band without its listeners? Just like the rain falling on your cheeks, our sounds are meant to fall into your souls ! It can be a calm or a stormy rain ! It all depends on your mood. Listen and dare to dream ! You can have your own rain !
First of all, let’s introduce ourselves! We are Modiwo. Maybe you wonder why Modiwo? Our music has no boundaries neither of style nor language, so we wanted a name that expresses this concept.
Now that you have joined our funky world, let’s hit the road! Today, our destination is Africa where we find the funky history of two of our percussion instruments: djembe and udu drum.
There is a strong connection between a band and its fans. This connection is the defining element that leads to success. The way to success is built step by step. The style of music and personality is the foundation of a strong relationship between fans and musicians, which further enhances the meaning of the music among the public.
"In describing the sound of Modiwo, one cannot simply compare their component parts with the attributes of other music artists. Modiwo resists classification and pigeonholing." S. McCauley, Staff Press Release Writer at MondoTunes
Instruments, lyrics, voices, it’s all about the energy! Those who already attended our shows, have seen the real benefits live music can have, they felt the World Music, the World’s Vibe.
Funk is all over the place. You see funky people everywhere and every day. They are self-styled, creative, in touch with themselves, free of inhibitions and capable of tapping instincts and celebrating the human condition in all its forms. Funkiness is a way of life…
When we see “lama”, we think about percussion music and instruments. Tribal mood. What if for our next concert we organize a special jam session moment for our lama fans?
We like to say that alternative world music is a blend of present with the past, resulting a fusion of modern influences, all this together creating the image of our band. Alternative style means freshness, energy and modern sounds. World Music can be defined as the tendency to recontextualize sounds of the traditional past.
“Fruit Fusion” as a musical gift is about our fruit raising project. We will have a series of concerts, and the entrance fee is one kilo of fruits. All the fruits will be collected and donated to children and elder people shelters. We say it’s an original Modiwo concept because it’s unique in Romania and it represents us as humans and musicians.
