Moor Mother
Moor Mother
Self-described as “project housing bop”, and “slaveship punk”, Moor Mother is the visceral, politically charged output of Philadelphia musician, poet, and visual artist Camae Ayewa. Her 2016 debut album Fetish Bones appeared on year-end lists from Noisy, Rolling Stone, Spin, and Pitchfork and was named #3 album of the year by The Wire, who said that “the Afrofuturist collages of Camae Ayewa draw science fiction, radical politics and stinging social critique into a grand narrative of struggle and endurance. Using jazz, noise, spoken word and sampled voices, Moor Mother’s music is “deliberately raw and unfiltered, like human feelings” (FADER).
