British Zambian Artist Mofya Releases His First International Single "Hair On Fire/Umulilo"
Mofya is a British-Zambian singer, songwriter and music producer living in California. He creates a unique blend of soulful RnB, which combines a modern sound with deep links to the classics and to the African roots of RnB and soul music. His passion for lyrics that are powerful and beautiful and speak directly to the human condition makes him stand out among artists who are just trying to make “hits”. Mofya was born and raised in Zambia, where he taught himself guitar and keyboards, learning to play songs by ear whether they were on the radio or part of his church band repertoire. His early musical influences include Bob Marley and his powerful acoustic reggae, Tracy Chapman whose human-conscious music inspired many, and Stevie Wonder the groove and melodic maestro who continue to set a standard for modern musicians. Since moving to California, Mofya has embarked on a musical journey that brings together his influences in Africa, Europe, and now the USA to create a tasteful blend of music that often crosses genre boundaries but could be described as RnB/soul with deep African consciousness. - Hair on Fire is about finding that thing or that person that gets you so excited it feels like your hair is on fire. I wrote it from an experience of playing street guitar, when someone stopped to listen, it was the most exciting thing. "Umulilo" is a Zambian word for fire and is the refrain that runs through the song. The full refrain “Leto ‘mulilo” means “bring the fire”. The song is upbeat because it is a celebration of the fact that even when life is tough, and you are somewhat invisible to others, there is always something that can warm your heart - get your "Hair on Fire”. It could be playing cards with friends, listening to music, visiting Mother, hearing from a friend from a long time ago, watching your favorite team, a smile on the street...
