Idioma disponible: inglésPhiladelphia-based Moor Mother (aka Moor Mother Goddess or MMGz) is the solo outlet for Maryland-born artist Camae Ayewa. Moor Mother's music combines social issues with a visceral blend of hardcore electronics and her intense poetry, as if Saul Williams and Noname joined Death Grips. Ayewa -- who is also an educator, coach, and social activist -- grew up rapping and "playing guitar" with broomstick handles, influenced as much by Patti LaBelle, Public Enemy, and the Beastie Boys as Malcolm X and Maya Angelou. As a teenager, she delved into the punk scene, preferring its hard edge and D.I.Y. spirit as a vehicle for authentic expression. Ayewa created her Moor Mother project in 2012, after her politically charged hip-hop punk group the Mighty Paradocs went on hiatus. Blending spoken word, jazz rhythms, harsh dissonance, and an almost industrial rawness, Ayewa shifted her focus to beats and textures, which would bring her socially conscious lyrics to life. Her debut EP, Alpha Serpentis, was released at the end of 2012. In the ensuing years -- in addition to co-founding the Rockers! Philadelphia series with the art collectives AfroFuturist Affair's Rasheedah Phillips and Black Quantum Futurism -- she would release dozens more. Her LP Fetish Bones (Don Giovanni Records) was issued in 2016. Focusing on historical trauma and the black experience, Ayewa utilized Afrocentric tribal beats and abrasive, unsettling textures, resulting in a cathartic expression of pain and bloodletting. The following year, she released a collection of unreleased poetry and soundscapes from her past titled The Motionless Present. Her second full-length, 2019's Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes, brought together the disparate threads of Afro, punk, techno. blues, and noise that influence her sound, with Saul Williams and MC Reef the Lost Cause featuring on two of the tracks. ~ Neil Z.
