Multi-talented singer, songwriter, filmmaker, sustainability advocate, and one-woman tour de force Mogli has released Ravage – her gorgeous, ethereal indie-pop album and epic companion film that shares a cathartic journey of self-discovery and healing.
“I have learned that it is very rewarding and can make you happy if you can be brave enough to be vulnerable. We are lacking empathy in the world and vulnerability is a way toward more empathy. If you can share how you feel, it gives people a chance to understand you,” shares Mogli.

Today fans joined Mogli for a live global watch party on her Youtube channelcelebrating the release, where she performed and answered questions before premiering the Ravage film. Prior to its release, Mogli had beenrevealing the story of Ravage through a series of episodic videos taken from the film. The latest installment prior to its release “Mirror” saw Mogli extricating herself from self-destructive tendencies and learning that the conflicting voices in her head were not real as she battled to let go of a toxic relationship.Now, the journey ends withbrand new songs “Poison,” title track “Ravage” and album closer “Release,” as Mogli embraces the possibilities of happiness and the inevitably of pain, this time without fear. Mogli’s gift for poetic songwriting paints a picture of her personal experience,losing herself in depression and burnout, learning to detach from toxic patterns and partners, and finding hope and happiness again.
Believing that art can be a bridge between us that can foster connection and inclusion, the message behind Mogli’s acclaimed music – which has amassed more than 100 million global streams -is about being brave enough to be vulnerable, which allows us to overcome, heal and connect.
Ravage also tackles topics important to Mogli because of her lived experiences, like self-empowerment, feminism, toxic masculinity and societal problems like climate change. Growing up in Germany as part of anLGBTQ family with two moms, and a dad from Algeria, gave Mogli her values of inclusivity and equality, and she now uses her art to create connection in a world that desperately needs more of that, especially when it is not nurtured by politics, educational systems, social media, news algorithms, or the isolation that came from COVID.
Ravage is all the more impressive because of Mogli’s independent, DIY approach – conceiving, creating and executing the album and film in full creative control of her vision.
