The music of HuDost, the Neo Folk World Rock Ensemble from Montreal and KY, weaves a seamless tapestry of sound that renders tears and laughter in listeners, cultivating that nameless longing that abides somewhere in all our hearts. HuDost’s core musicians are Moksha Sommer and Jemal Wade Hines. Having toured the US, Canada, and Europe constantly since April 2006, HuDost has grown and expanded, travelled rocky and glorious terrain and marveled at all they can learn and explore. Moksha and Jemal Wade, in this time have grown as artists, as seekers, as a couple and as a family. In 2013 their amazing son was brought into the world.

Exciting Season! 

We are currently working on a new album that has AMAZING special guests. We will share our big news with you soon...We are very happy with the direction the album is heading and can't wait to share it with you!

We have also begun a wonderful season of touring! All of our tour dates are HERE. They include Unifier Festival, Hillside Festival, Levitt AMP, Blessed Coast Music Festival, Beloved Festival, and more that we will be announcing soon!

In the past two decades, the United States has led the way in making remarkable progress against HIV/AIDS around the world. Programs funded by the federal government, such as the Global Fund and PEPFAR, have saved tens of millions of lives while preventing even more new infections. These programs have served as model government programs in terms of efficiency and efficacy. These same programs now face the threat of cuts in the federal budget, which could undo much of the progress that we have made. 

We’ll be asking Senators to continue America’s investment in life-saving programs like PEPFAR and the Global Fund in the federal budget. We’ll also be asking them to vocalize this support during the week of World AIDS Day on the House and Senate floor or through public statements. 

ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of more than eight million people around the world taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. 

We believe the fight against poverty isn’t about charity, but about justice and equality. 

Whether lobbying political leaders in world capitals or running cutting-edge grassroots campaigns, ONE pressures governments to do more to fight AIDS and other preventable, treatable diseases in the poorest places on the planet, to empower small-holder farmers, to expand access to energy, and to combat corruption so governments are accountable to their citizens. Cofounded by Bono and other activists, ONE is strictly nonpartisan.

Montreal Folk and Stan Rogers 

Just Returned from playing the Montreal Folk Fest and The Stan Rogers Folk Fest (Nova Scotia)!

We had a wonderful time playing both of these festivals and the other lovely ones that were included in the last month of touring! In a few weeks we will be playing several outdoor performing arts centers including some of the new Levitts! See you beautiful folks in NY, VT, QC, and OH!

At the Stan Rogers Folk Festival we played MainStage and side stage sets as HuDost and then also had the honor of being Ramy Essam's backing band. We look forward to playing with him more in the future.
