Moor Mother talks about the truth of music in new Vice profile
Anyone who’s heard Moor Mother‘s music, either on last year’s excellent Fetish Bones LP or on her earlier recordings, knows that Camae Defstar doesn’t shirk from the often brutal truth of her life experience. In a new interview with Daily Vice’s Michelle Lhooq, the Philadelphia artist shares her thoughts on the importance of hearing stories straight from the people who live them as well as music’s political place.
Over clips of live performances, including one in North Philly’s Atrium space, Defstar tells us about the first punk song she ever heard, her experience growing up in public housing, and the lead epidemic that is impacting many major inner cities.
Watch the video below. Moor Mother is currently on tour in Germany but will be back home for a show on March 4th; details here.
