Elemotho G. R.  Mosimane is a Namibian born musician who composes, records and performs his own music. This artist plays acoustic guitar as well as sings in his mother-tongue Setswana, English and other Namibian languages. He does not classify his music under a certain style: “I see myself as a performing artist and musical activist; I like to throw reality around, thus exploring the depth of the human spirit”. His sound is solid yet transparent, with messages that create a utopia through music. From solo performances up to playing with his band, this artist does it all, from turning oppression into liberation, failure into triumph, where the past, present and future is delivered through his melodies. From rural boy to modern lyricist this artist from the Kalahari tries to divorce himself from your usual commercial and easily consumable sounds by using experimental ideas where reality is amplified through his vision of music. “I grew up with Story telling around the fire and that has inspired me to create something that could make you dance as well as listen, smile as well as cry, find peace as well as wisdom”.
When you listen to Elemotho’s first album “The system is a joke” you get an impression that you are listening to a musician who has a lot to say. He carries his music with a touch of rhythms from the Kalahari Desert, mixed with ethnic and global sounds, the calling of the rain combined with messages for our modern times. Elemotho has been busy the last years, performing from South Africa to European International music festivals getting his music more solid and tighter than ever. This musician has had the time to explore new sensations and odours all resulting into “HUMAN”, the second album that came out in November 2008. With songs to move your mind and entice your spirit, he wants to transmit feelings and ideas that challenge the status quo and leave no stone unturned, from politics to philosophy, spirituality to reality.
