Moor Mother presents The Great Bailout

On her latest album ‘The Great Bailout’, Moor Mother aka Camae Ayewa and her collaborators invite you on an evocative trail through themes of Afrofuturism and collective memory with the forebearers of jazz, hip hop and beat poetry in mind. 

Running in parallel to this is the thread of black life as freedom, black life otherwise, it’s in the music, the sonic landscape that is Moor Mother’s black music making as freedom and in the legacy bequeathed by earlier generations of black music makers, she so keenly honours.

Tender and atmospheric, The Great Bailout is astounding for the poignancy and tenderness in which it invites listeners to dwell in facing Britain’s complicity not just in enslavement and its afterlives, but also its very making as a built environment and social-political formation.

Moor Mother will be joined on stage by vital member of Bristol’s alternative scene Harrga and Dan Johnson for a special one off performance.
