Camae Ayewa’s (aka Moor Mother) answer 1:50 + Irreversible Entanglements „Fireworks” 7:44

Camae Ayewa (aka Moor Mother) is a musician and poet from Philadelphia, United States. Her work has been labelled "hardcore poetry," "power electronics," "slaveship punk," and "protest music." Ayewa herself resists categorization, preferring to self-identify through terms such as "time traveller" and "truth teller." A self-described Afrofuturist, she uses spacetime-bending sound and lyricism to reformulate concepts of memory, history, and the future in an afrocentric or afrodiasporictradition. Ayewa is one half of the Black Quantum Futurism collective, along with Rasheedah Phillips of the Afrofuturist Affair. She has performed in the punk band The Mighty Paradocs, and is also the co-founder of Rockers! Philly, an "event series and festival focused on marginalized artists".In June 2016, Ayewa and Phillips opened the Community Futures Lab, an "afrofuturist community center" in North Philadelphia where they lead workshops and teach-ins, provide space for artistic practice, and fight gentrification in the area.
