The MBC version of The voice–produced by Lebanese Saudi venture introduced us to many talents, some are fine voices, some are original voices, some are amazing personalities, some can sell albums, some can take you to cloud 9 once they sing something. One of these voices is Iraqi Austrian musician and vocalist Rita Mofsisian who sounds like one of the original Iraqi gypsy kings.
Rita is not short of confidence, and she knows she is not competing for votes, she just wants to entertain. She only got the attention of Iraqi super-stat Kadem Al Saher whose chair turned, the rest of the coaches, did not bother. Rita is native of Baghdad, who spend the bulk of her time in Vienna living and working on her music career. She explored a number of styles form around the world–she seems to be influenced by Iraqi oldies and Flamenco music. Aside from music, she had a degree in business where she used to hold a number of day jobs.
Her first song came at the age of 10 and ever since Rita has been singing when given a venue. In 2003, she started working on unearthing old Armenian and Iraqi folkloric songs. She has also an interest in Jazz and has performed in many occasions at her home in Vienna. This makes me think, her voice is a perfect tool for intercultural events and folksy festivals around the world.
