As Moor Mother, she released her debut album Fetish Bones on Don Giovanni records to critical acclaim in 2016. Fetish Bones was named one of the most innovative and important records of the decade. Same year, Camae’s debut book of poetry was released by The AfroFuturist Affair. Camae has released multiple albums every year since Fetish Bones, what with variety of other projects, commissions, exhibitions and residencies throughout the world created a status of a leader of the new generation of visionary black storytellers. Garnering acclaim for masterfully reimagining electronic noise as protest songs, in her singular, deeply personal music, she combines noise, politics, and Afrofuturism. Camae Ayewa shapes the vocabulary of hip hop and energy of punk rock into a musical tour de force. For this occasion, Moor Mother will have two special guests: Dudù Kouate (her collaborator within the projects of Art Ensemble of Chicago), and Mats Gustafsson.
