HMD | Sounds From The Other City – Sounds From The Other City
Salford's festival of new music and art • Every early May Bank Holiday •
A black and white image of a man stood to the side with his hand on his chin and staring at the camera

Born in Mogadishu, and raised in Manchester, by way of Denmark, HMD’s experiences and heritage have shaped his perspective on the world, which are grounded in moral quirks that defy his surroundings, living in inner-city Moss Side, Manchester. HMD’s music explores identity, love and loss through a sonic lens moulded by his formative years spent listening to pop and R&B. Born into a clan renowned for its poets and storytellers, genetics go some way in explaining HMD’s lyrical prowess. HMD has cemented his status as one of Manchester’s most intelligent vocalists.
