Selma Uamusse (MZ)
Selma Uamusse released her debut album Mati in 2018. Widely praised by national critics, it was presented on several prestigious national and international stages, on a tour with more than 60 concerts. The album is heard as two simultaneous journeys – a geographical one, a visit to Mozambique, where the singer supplies herself with sounds and shares her identity; and an interior one, on a spiritual map that is discovered as the music infiltrates those who listen.
In 2020 she released her second album Liwoningo. This is an album that accentuates an Africanness that continues to inspire lyrics and melodies, but that mixes around the world, in themes and arrangements, some closer to the tradition of folklore, others that wander between electronic, rock, afro-beat and experimental.
In her own name, Selma Uamusse is much more than a collage of her artistic adventures. Her music is a manifesto for harmony in our surroundings, a positive outlook on the world. A form of struggle and hope for a freer society, with more love.
