Nostalgic but still relevant

February 14, 2018

DELVING into the inner obscurity of jazz, Mojo Juju creates a dark fantasy which is as exhilarating as it is dazzling.

Impossible to label or fit into a box, Mojo will have you fascinated as soon as she steps on stage.

‘‘I’m a total nostalgia-file, always looking backwards, but you have to be relevant,’’ the vocalist said in a recent interview with Beat Magazine.

‘‘You are not evolving the form if you’re not taking it somewhere.

‘‘Every time I make something new I have to do it differently.

‘‘I don’t know whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing but it’s definitely a lot of fun.’’

Her journeyman lyrics and powerful voice has seen her release two albums, with another one on the way.

Beginning to release a steady stream of singles, all receiving a wealth of praise for their infusions of styles and sounds, Mojo is set to make her presence known.

‘‘I draw out different parts of my personality and what I can offer as a songwriter,’’ she said.

‘‘The album’s kind of a hybrid thing, electronic and live and there are so many ways to do that.

‘‘I think it takes time to get to know yourself, to know what the story is you’re telling.’’

Gracing the Riverboats stage on Saturday, Mojo will enchant and delight everyone.
