Moor Mother x LCO: The Great Bailout – London (+ Klein + Galya Bisengalieva)
Address: Milton Court Concert Hall
A first time collaboration between Philadelphia based interdisciplinary artist Moor Mother and the London Contemporary Orchestra, The Great Bailout is free verse poem that acts as a non linear word map about colonialism, slavery and commerce in Great Britain and her commonwealth. Moor Mother is a representative of Afro-futurism with her social activist texts and furiously experimental electronics.
Merging social realism with eerily surreal imagery and an immediacy of delivery, Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother) is unmatched in inventiveness. A musician, poet and visual artist, Camae has performed around the world, sharing the stage with King Britt, Roscoe Mitchell, Claudia Rankine, Bell Hooks and more. Camae is a vocalist with Irreversible Entanglements, Moor Jewelry, 700bliss and the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
Opening sets come from South London producer Klein and violinist Galya Bisengalieva
