Anthony “Mogli” Maureal was born on the island of Cebu, in the Philippines. When he was 10 years old, his family immigrated to San Jose, California, where he discovered his passion for extreme sports and American music—especially hip hop, metal, alternative rock, ambient, and screamo. He began drumming at the age of 13 and developed his chops playing for his high school’s award-winning marching band. Mogli majored in Sound Arts at Ex’pression College for Digital Arts. Since graduating in 2012, he has been working all over the San Francisco Bay Area as a sound artist, composer, and studio musician. In addition to drumming, Mogli is a photographer, drum instructor, and composes and produces music for film, dance, and theater. Mogli released his first self-produced album, Frumosa, in 2013.
