Albino Mbie is a multi award-Winning Musician, Guitarist, Singer, Composer, Sound Engineer, Music Producer, and a Berklee College of Music Professor in Boston. He was born in Kamubukwane District, Bairro George Demitrove, well known as Benfica, in the suburbs of Maputo, Mozambique, the capital city of Mozambique, a country in Southern Africa known for its rich musical and cultural heritage. Fueled by the resourcefulness and determination that have always characterized Mozambicans, he built his first guitar at age 15 from a 5-liter can of oil, scrap wood, and strings made from electrical cords. He moved to the US to attend Berklee College of Music in 2009, being among the first Africans awarded a full tuition scholarship via the Berklee African Scholars Program. In 2013, he graduated with a dual major in Music Production & Sound Engineering and Guitar Performance and dual minors in Acoustics and Electronics. Since then, he has shared his Mozambican roots—music, dance, culture, and native languages enriched by the experience of living and studying in the US with the rest of the world. During the years, he learned to combine rhythmic patterns and musical concepts to create a unique Marrabenta, Nikatche, Afro-Pop, and Moz-Jazz sound.

His passion for travel, discovery, experimentation, to be an active touring musician allowed him to share the stage with godfathers of American jazz, such as Wayne Shorter, Joe Lovano, John Patitucci, and more, as well as African giants such as Richard Bona, Jimmy Dludlu, Mulatu Astatke and many more.

Radha is a 24 year old R&B singer/songwriter from Boston, MA. As an Indian American, Radha gained initial exposure within the realm of Indian Classical music before exploring the genres of pop, r&b, and jazz. She has received recognition from the likes of John Legend, Jason Derulo, and Willow Smith for her heart-felt and melodic approach to art. Using artists such as Jhene Aiko, Sade, and Norah Jones as inspiration, she aims to express her emotions authentically and forge a deep connection with listeners using a dark and soulful ambience.
