Amsterdam based artist Joya Mooi creates music that unlocks feelings and overcomes darkness. By combining her South African roots with European productions, she brings an innovative R&B that combines jazz, trap, pop and hip-hop influences into an organic sound. With her unique voice and dreamy arrangements, Mooi takes you into her world where ideals are resolute, identity and spirituality go hand in hand, and happiness and beauty are never far away. Mooi dares to make bold choices, even addressing the colonial past of her own name.
Last September, Joya Mooi released her new album, “What’s Around The Corner (Side A)”, on which she delves deeper into life’s big and small matters. On the self-reflective album, she addresses themes of spirituality, personal growth, social awareness and interpersonal connection.
For the album, which will be followed by a second part in early 2023, she collaborated, among others, with Sim Fane, Elijah Waters and SIROJ.
