Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh
Maimouna Youssef (also known as Mumu Fresh) is a GRAMMY-Nominated singer, songwriter, activist and acclaimed Hip Hop artist who’s been called a “quadruple threat” by The Roots’ Black Thought and “groundbreaking” by Oscar-winning artist, Common.

As a performer, Maimouna has shared the stage with countless icons including: The Roots, Sting, Bobby McFerrin, Lala Hathaway, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Ed Sheeran, D’Angelo, Femi Kuti, Aloe Blacc, Zap Mama, Bruno Mars, Nas and Dave Chappelle.

In 2018, Maimouna received international acclaim for featured performances on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series alongside Common, Robert Glasper, Karriem Riggins, Black Thought and DJ Dummy. NPR calls her “an abundantly gifted singer and emcee” with “multi-octave range and ferocious rap delivery.”

Her stage show has been called a “unique” and “spiritual” experience, captivating audiences at world-famous venues around the globe: Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Montreaux Jazz Festival (Switzerland), Sundance Film Festival, Jazz Café (London), Red Rocks Amphitheater (Denver), Central Park SummerStage (New York), Rueben Dario National Theater (Nicaragua), The Recording Academy’s “Grammy Festival At Sea,” and New Africa Shrine (Lagos, Nigeria).

In 2018, Mumu also became the voice of Ford Motor Company’s “Roll On” campaign celebrating Women of Color, and was awarded the prestigious post of “Musical Ambassador for The United States,” travelling to Central America to support the rights of young women. Maimouna’s Afro-Native roots and rich activist history have spawned collaborations with philanthropic leaders including W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Congressional Black Caucus, and Global Citizen Festival, leading to appearances on MSNBC, FOX 45, and global network, Al Jazeera.

With seven independent albums to her credit (including the recent “Vintage Babies” with DJ Dummy)—and film credits including Queen Sugar, Being Mary Jane, Girls’ Trip and Dave Chappelle’s Block Party—Maimouna stands poised to be a true breakthrough artist in 2019. Her latest project, produced by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The PLAYlist, is due on June 11th, 2019.

Maimouna’s work continues to establish her as a true Global Citizen, a musical healer, teacher, powerhouse performer, and community pillar.

DJ Dummy (will no longer be performing)
Dummy is an unlikely name for a mastermind, but don’t be fooled by the name. This Battle, Club and renowned Concert DJ who adds Musical Director and Producer to his resume hails from Brooklyn, New York. Growing up, the DJ influence was always around, watching and listening to both his father and brother DJ. This early exposure sparked his love of music, and by the tender age of 7 he had his hands on the turntables.
