Pure performance by contemporary Afrofuturist spoken word genius

Moor Mother is the project of spoken word and noise artist Camae Aweyan, hailing from North Philadelphia. Her debut album Fetish Bones rightly received worldwide critical acclaim in 2017, including from leading music magazine The Wire. This mainstay of the American Afrofuturist scene will be bringing a remarkable and pure performance to Explore the North. Her background in hardcore and punk colours the intensity of her live show, which features the most sincere and intense spoken word performance you’ll ever have the fortune to witness. The varied rhythm of her delivery – ranging between furious and subtle – will have you on the edge of your seat. All this is backed by fiery experimental musical collages packed with sound explosions and field recordings: this is definitely one show you won’t want to miss!

“Moor Mother might be the most radical - even the most useful - Afrofuturist artist to emerge for years.” - The Wire
