Mohamed M. Kooshin was one of a rarified group in Somali music, a master of the kaban who followed in the footsteps of the legendary players of the kaban such as Qarshe, Hudeydi, and Omar Dhuule. Kooshin was the youngest member of Somalia's esteemed national music group Waaberi before leaving Somalia in the early 1990s and moving to Toronto, Canada. In Canada Kooshin produced a string of releases for Waberi Studio and Arts, collaborating with Sahro Ahmed , writing and recording out of his home studio. Kooshin passed away on December 27th 2018 leaving behind a legacy of beautiful music and loving fans across the global Somali diaspora. Kooshin played the kaban which has a special place in Somali music. It was a foreign instrument that, upon its arrival to Somalia in the 1940s, became the centre of the immensely popular style of music known as qaraami. For many Somali music fans the sound of qaraami - poetic lyrics accompanied by the sparse sounds of the kaban and bongo drums - is the quintessential Somali sound. A joint release with Wait And See from Toronto, Canada and the first in a series of Somali recordings from Toronto.
