Paul Mounsey is a Scottish composer and producer who has been living for the past 15 years in Brazil. Born in Ayrshire, Scotland and raised in Ross-Shire in the Highlands. He studied piano and composition with Richard Arnell at Trinity College of London, and graduated with Honours. After a spell at the London International Film School (where he studied Film Composition), he taught briefly at Goldsmith's College, University of London. He has worked mainly in advertising and television, providing music for a variety of directors (including Tony Scott, Michael Shapiro, Paul Giraud, Dariusz Wolski and Hugh Johnson) and working with musicians from a variety of backgrounds (Michael Nyman, Etta James, Chico Buarque, Jimmy Cliff, the late Antonio Carlos Jobim and the Bahian percussion group Olodum). For some time, whenever he listened to any traditional Scottish folk music, particularly that sung in Gaelic, he felt terribly home sick.

Perhaps because he didn't have any Gaelic, he felt the music was somehow alien, but also similar to Native American. One day, he decided to play around with some samples and remixed them with other forms of music. The result was "Passing Away". He decided to go further with the project, and Nahoo was born.The project aimed to fuse pop rhythms and the latin influences of his adopted home, with the traditional sounds of his native Scotland.
