Duke Arts Presents

Mumu Fresh

Thu, Sep. 19 thru Sat, Sep. 21, 2019

Maimouna Youssef (aka Mumu Fresh), grew up pivoting between genres and styles — singing gospel and jazz with her mother in an African-American Muslim household and drawing inspiration from her Choctaw and Muscogee grandparents. Following a GRAMMY nomination for her vocal work with The Roots, Youssef has blossomed into a unique musical force.

This September, Duke Performances will host Youssef for a three-day residency, part of its ongoing Building Bridges: Muslims in America initiative, culminating in a performance at The Pinhook in downtown Durham.
