Life and work[edit]

He produces his music himself and is known for his eccentric and wild live performances, so in one year he played Europe-wide nearly hundred concerts.

He worked with a lot of known artists and musicians like Peter Thomas, Wolfgang Müller or Angie Reed, performed or produced music together with them. In the music magazine Q, Björk described Namosh's song "Cold Cream" as her favourite song of 2005. Namosh also played a role in the film Saturn Returns of Lior Shamriz.
