Moor Mother + Jerusalem In My Heart


The Music Gallery presents
Moor Mother + Jerusalem in My Heart
$20 Regular/$10 Members/$15 Advance

Our first concert of the season is a night of intense sonic construction and destruction featuring viscerally charged Philadelphia-based interdisciplinary artist Moor Mother. Camae Ayewa is a musician, poet, visual artist, and workshop facilitator, and has performed at numerous festivals, colleges, galleries, and museums around the world, sharing the stage with King Britt, Roscoe Mitchell, Claudia Rankine, Bell Hooks, and more. Ayewa is a vocalist in three collaborative performance groups: Irreversible Entanglements, Moor Jewelry and 700bliss.

Jerusalem In My Heart returns to the MG with their third full length album Daqa’iq Tudaiq (which translates as “minutes that bother/oppress/harass”). Featuring voice, electronics, buzuk and other instrumentation by composer-producer Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and complemented by the 16mm analog film work of Charles-André Coderre in live performance, JIMH continues to expand the horizons of its profound conceptual and aesthetic engagement with Arabic/Middle-Eastern traditions.
