About

Marcel Mokbel - Solo Acoustic Guitar

Marcel Mokbel is a solo acoustic guitarist from Germany.
Born in 1991, he started playing the acoustic guitar at the age of 14, learning all by himself.
After a period of learing basics, he came across fingerstyle music and started writing his own stuff.
First videos were uploaded on YouTube in late 2008, followed by videos (with more than 500.000 views in sum), live concerts and his first solo CD "Close Your Eyes", published in May 2012.
Marcel is the first german musician to be featured on the YouTube channel of the canadian label Candyrat Records with his tune "How It Hurts".
Don't know which music to play because your friends/family have different personal taste? Marcel's music suits all ages. His tunes are guided by catchy melodies and groovy rhythms. The combination of fingerstyle, slapping, percussions and emotion leads to a new sound, stirring the audience.
Enjoy a symbiosis of pop, rock, funk, and soul with elements of lounge music and the sounds of movie soundtracks.
