Raashan’s albums The Push and the groundbreaking For What You’ve Lost garnered worldwide attention and earned him the devoted admiration of fans as he has toured feverishly throughout North America, Europe, Japan, Australia, and Brazil. He plays two sets at Momo’s on 25 and 26 October 2011.
Raashan Ahmad is known for his intimate performance style where he bares all and let’s the audience in on a journey into hip hop, soul, and universal truths that transgress language, culture, and nationality.
International tastemaker Gilles Peterson proclaimed For What You’ve Lost’s “Pain on Black” as one of his top ten songs of the year in 2010 and invited Raashan to perform at his World Wide Awards 2011 in London. Add to that a performance on Live Radio Nova’s Nuit Zébrée and an interview and spotlight on France 24 that reached over 20 million viewers—it is clear that Raashan Ahmad has hit his stride.
