Mouraine’s story is nothing short of remarkable; the artist immigrated to Canada from Northern Sudan with his Mother and siblings after they were forced to seek asylum. Finding refuge with his family in Edmonton Canada, Mouraine was introduced to a local youth centre and began exploring the intersection between sports and hip-hop culture as a way of establishing a community. Motivated by his uniquely personal life experiences, a raw and innate musical ability, and an undeniable instinct to connect with others; Mouraine’s energy is endlessly entertaining. His debut release, Cold Mornings 2 led to Mouraine supporting notable artists like J. Cole, Akon, Pusha T, Mac Miller, T-Pain, Big Sean, Shad and Classified. His debut EP Bigger Dreams (August 2021) features 5 tracks written by Mouraine, recorded at Atreus XO with Graham Smith in Edmonton AB. The project is mixed and mastered by Grammy nominated and G.O.O.D Music Producer Mike Snell (Kanye West, Teyana Taylor). The EP has received props from Complex, The Source, CBC, Earmilk, If It’s Too Loud, Hip Hop Canada, and so many more. Mouraine is without a doubt an artist that everyone should be watching in 2022 with new music produced by WCMA producers of the year Deadmen (Begonia, Ashleigh Ball, Royal Canoe) on the way. From building an international hip-hop legacy, to raising up the next generation of dreamers, creators, policy makers, and entertainers; Mouraine is determined to inspire a revolution.
The concert by Mouraine is part of the "c/o pop 2022 musichubgermany " project and is funded by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
