mosh


Explanation:
I'd have to see the context it's in. Seeing it on its own all I can think of is the English word "mosh", the 'dancing' you do at rock concerts that consists of really just throwing yourself against the nearest person, a 'mosh-pit' being the area of crowd at the front of the stage full of people seething to and fro and nearly crushing each other to death. For all I know the context you've lifted it from could be using this word in the (probable) absence of their being a Spanish equivalent. If not then I'm making a fool of myself and will say no more....

Explanation:
Unless, it is a hispanicized "mush" (the American version of polenta), following the rule that makes a car *clutch* a "cloche* in Spanish, it must be the dance. See:
