Rain...such an amazing phenomenon! Rain is life. Without it, nothing grows; and in the same time it has a very mystical aspect and mysterious power to bring up all kinds of feelings and moods. There’s no limit. It’s the most inspiring moment of nature and without inspiration there is no meaning to the word artist.
Today, the sound of our instruments will pierce the heavy clouds and light your soul just like thunderbolts light the sky on a stormy weather. Today will be raining with energy; the vibe will make everyone become a source of energy and good mood!
We love these kinds of trips. Although they can be quite tiring, we have a lot of fun. As usually, a band’s car is always full of… equipment. Adi has to play Tetris with all the luggage in order to fit perfectly everything we have. We generally like driving with the top down, but as we don’t have a convertible car, we just turn on the air conditioning and let the fresh ‘wind’ blow through our hair. :)
Sanskrit is what we call ‘the icing on the cake’. :) The use of Sanskrit in our concept helps us express the unknown, the unutterable, the mysterious side of things. It’s what we, as beings, don’t understand, what we can’t guess, what we can’t conceive in our own existence and lives. It’s the profound answers we are always looking for.
Cocktails! They were always a mystery to me. It’s amazing how the final taste of a great cocktail is so different and much better than the separate components. They have the gift of making one curious. You may know what ingredients it contains, but the taste is always a surprise. This is Modiwo music
We all know that music requires a lot of time and passion. A studio is an artist’s world, the place where the songs are brought to life. Like any other band, we spend lots of time in the recording studio. Since you can’t be with us, we thought to offer you today a free pass for a day in our nutshell! Behind the hard work and rehearsals, we also have great fun!
The sound of the shakuhachi comes from the edge of silence, crossing boundaries of time and culture to echo in the soul. The unfathomable vibration of this simple bamboo flute continues to awaken a universal vibe in our spirits...

You find out what World Music and Alternative Music are, and how we make them work together. You find out about what inspires us as musicians and as persons.
Vegetables, fruits, flowers, dressing, an exploding mix, unique and absolutely tasty!
Can a salad be funky? We say “Oh yeah!”
In our 2 Fruit Fusion caravans we managed to collect almost one ton and a half of fruits: apples, bananas, oranges, pineapples, kiwis, grapefruits, coconuts, pomegranates, pomelos, lemons and even raisins and pistachios. This is what we call Fruit Fusion!
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.
Music is about feeling, not about understanding – maybe this is the best way to explain the concept of World Music. Through lyrics and sounds we emphasize the emotional side of people, knowing that the only difference between them is the way they express their feelings and emotions.
You are 5000 souls that feel the same, feed from our sounds and breathe excitement! And this is why we have 5000 reasons to feel happy and fulfilled!
