Moor Mother

Moor Mother (US) is an experimental music project by musician, poet, and community activist Camae Ayewa. She is one half of the Black Quantum Futurism Collective. Moor Mother is a self-described Afrofuturist, using sound and lyricism to reformulate Afrocentric concepts of memory, history, and the future. Her music is at the intersection of noise, free jazz, punk, and rap. Moor Mother’s debut album, Fetish Bones, was a non-linear telling of black American history through spoken word, thickets of samples, and looped electronics. Camae Ayewa is a 2016 Leeway Award recipient and 2016 Blade of Grass Fellow.
