Camae Ayewa aka Moor Mother calls her low-fi rap spiked with free jazz a churning brand of “slaveship punk”. Her spoken word performances pelt down on us like gunfire. The main topic of this vehement stroke of liberation: the experience of the Afro-diaspora in a hostile environment. Moor Mother underlines her gender-neutral lyrics with nervous bass waves in the formulation of harsh protest songs. She tells of personal stories, generalised suffering, and the sustained trauma through racial oppression.
