Mosno Al-Moseeki, the 3rd World Rocker, is an international singer/songwriter Native of Sudan. He uses Arab-poetic lyrics, with a pentatonic influenced style of acoustic alternative rock. He calls it Desert Eclectic.
He is now finishing up a full length concept album “Novella” which is a semi biographical fairy tale of his cultural migration, which features many immigrant artists & a plethora of exotic instruments.
Since June of 2012 his websites have been banned in his home country Sudan, due to his anti-regime song “System Down (#SudanRevolts)”. He donates all the proceeds from that song to Girifna (we are fed up), a non-violent protest movement based in Sudan.
His song “No Kingdom” is featured in the first Sudanese/American short film “Faisal Goes West”, which premiered in Short Film Festivals in London, France, Italy, India, & Germany, all in 2013.
The short film has won "Best In Show" award in the Kansas City International Film Festival.
