Mombao is a duo formed by Damon Arabsolgar and Anselmo Luisi.
It is an immersive and original project, halfway between a performance and a concert: the two performers mix original songs in different languages with folk songs from different cultures rearranged with an electronic-rock taste.
The performance takes place in the center of the room, with the two musicians covered in clay and body paint, surrounded by the audience.
The popular root of the project allows Mombao to have a transterritorial nature and an impact on different cultures.
The resulting performance is a mystical techno/punk ritual in which the audience is engaged and dragged to go from a state of great concentration and listening to a liberating dance. 

Mombao is solarpunk.




“Darkness, a circle of people, two sonic epicenters. Damon cuts the silence with a sharp voice, Anselmo doubles it and starts beating the drums, to which a hypnotic synth line is added. All around, no one can stay still. After having heard them, something happens inside each listener; unconsciously you understand that what you witnessed was a real musical experience, far from the concerts we are used to, where we observe the musicians from a distance.”
Paolo Cerruto

“Because this is a Mombao live show, much more and at the same time something very different from a “simple” concert. “An experience” would say those good at marketing.”
