Maimouna Youssef AKA Mumu Fresh is a GRAMMY Award-nominated singer, songwriter, MC, and activist who has stepped out on her own after years working as a sought-after backup singer for legends like The Roots, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, and more—and we’re officially on notice. After a breakthrough Tiny Desk performance and two independent solo albums, the Baltimore native has established herself as an “abundantly gifted singer and emcee with multi-octave range and ferocious rap delivery,” (NPR) and a performer who creates deeply spiritual live experiences.

She is joined at this BRIC House Sessions by Washington D.C.-born, New York-based MC and poet KAMAUU, a quiet warrior making otherworldly music. After releasing his first full-length work, urth gold, on Atlantic Records and gaining notoriety from the likes of Okayplayer and fellow artists for his stunning visuals, KAMAUU has earned fans and followers while hard at work on new music. This year he released TheKAMAU-CASSETTE: MíXD GRēēNS, which weaves together threads of rap, reggae, soul, and even doo-wop. “I named it TheKAMAU-CASSETTE: MíXD GRēēNS because I feel green right now,” he admits. “I feel fertile. I feel like things are growing from me. The seeds planted by my elders and experiences are on the brink of breaking the surface, and I’m excited.”
