Dive Deeper: Global Impact of Hip Hop Culture and Music
Using her platform as a US Global Hip Hop Ambassador to disrupt, instigate and inspire, Maimouna Youssef aka MuMu Fresh kicks off her 2nd year residency in conversation sharing the impact of her music and culture globally. Her lyrics land as a rallying cry and a prayer. She has blessed the mic across the globe with dynamic lyricism, powerhouse vocals and messages of liberation. As our next WaterWorks commissioned artist Jason 'Timbuktu' Diakité prepares for the debut of his autobiographical musical, A Drop of Midnight which premiers in Spring 2020, he will share his creative process on becoming one of Sweden's chart topping hip hop artist to writing a best-selling novel to creating a theater piece and how a mix tape from Brooklyn traveled across the waters to the tiny village of Lund, Sweden and altered the course of his life forever. This conversation between MuMu Fresh and Jason 'Timbuktu' Diakité dives deep into the alchemical power of hip hop culture and music to move the crowd and transform lives. And who knows what might erupt when you get two fiercely talented MCs in one room.
