Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, activist and acclaimed Hip Hop artist Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh received international acclaim in 2018 for her featured performances on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series alongside Common, Robert Glasper, Karriem Riggins, Black Thought and DJ Dummy. Also that year, Youssef became the songwriter and 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.
In 2019, Mumu performed at the 2019 BET Black Girls Rock! Awards, delivering a soul-stirring performance of her song 'Say My Name' to honour the Mothers of the Movement, a group of women who lost African-American children at the hands of police officers or gun violence.
