MoHa!

MoHa! are boldly leading the way with a sound that encompasses the best of rock, free jazz and electronic music. Despite the enormity and broad spectrum of sounds that constitute their unique style, it is the work of just two musicians, Anders Hana on guitar, obsolete electronics and a palette of effects pedals, and Morten J.

They compliment and confront each other, with sharp and mechanical movements on one hand, free flowing and loose gestures on the other.

Since the release of their debut album Raus Aus Stavanger in early 2006 they have done considerable touring, both in Europe and in USA

Anders Hana and Morten J. Olsen--who, between the two of them, create a joyous noise on conventional ...

MoHa!: Norwegianism

Read "Norwegianism" reviewed by John Kelman

While detractors will suggest that noise improv is nothing but, well, noise, the fact remains that there are significant differences between artists working in this niche genre. In Norway, Supersilent has managed to carve out its own space, where harsh textures and open spaces (lyricism, even) meet. MoHa!, on the other hand, takes a ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
