Back by raving popular demand having been voted #1 in RCZN’s annual survey of regional Cajun & Zydeco performers.  But their more than just a regional Zydeco act …
 
What speaks to Mo’ Mojo’s stature is their earning a coveted spot on the US State Department’s American Music Abroad roster, from which they’d been selected for tours of Haiti & the Dominican Republic (2014); Tajikistan (Asia), Belize, Panama, Mexico, Barbados, and Colombia (2015); Sri Lanka (2017) to showcase the American musical form of Zydeco.   
 
Mo’ Mojo is a hard driving, high energy, Zydeco-based “Party-Gras” Band from Akron Ohio.  The female fronted group features three-part harmonies and traditional creole Zydeco instrumentation of accordion, fiddle, guitar, rubboard, bass, and drums, and they build out their own sound with a tasty presence of sax, trumpet, and blues harp.  Mo’ Mojo has a growing national following, already capturing the hearts and ears of folks in their land of inspiration, Louisiana.  In addition to powerful danceable renditions of Zydeco classics which is sure to satisfy the cravings of hard core Zydeco Dancers, Mo’ MoJo delivers many enticing originals with lyrics that encourage the imagination and grooves that inspire.
