The muses of La Musa: Moor Mother

Usual suspect on the Philadelphia music scene and socio-political activist in the city for over a decade, Camae Ayewa channels all that she has learnt from previous projects such as the Mighty Paradocs into Moor Mother, presenting a explosion of sound that rubs salt into the wounds of segregation. From the intense sessions of improvisation in her home studio, the artist created the confrontational songs of her celebrated latest album, Fetish Bones (2016) which are somewhere between noise and jazz and on which she used an overwhelming display of analog noise makers and field recordings. Tracks such as the monumental Deadbeat Protest seem to transport the listener right into the midst of a violent revolt.
