GRAMMY nominated singer, songwriter, activist, healer and educator Maimouna Youssef, also known as MuMu Fresh, returns to Harlem Stage for her second residency. Known for captivating audiences with what has been described as a “unique” and “spiritually transformative” live concert experience, this powerhouse lyricist and MC performs material from her recently recorded album “The Healing.” Baltimore native Youssef started singing traditional indigenous and African songs at four years old and began her music career at 16 years old. Throughout her performances viewers are immersed in a cappella sounds and musical elements that honor her ancestors.

Harlem Stage is proud to present this concert in recognition of “400 years of Inequality,” marking the anniversary of 1619, when the first Africans were brought to Jamestown and sold into bondage.

Maimouna will be joined by her mother, Grandmother Walks on Water.
