ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MAIMOUNA YOUSSEF a.k.a. MUMU FRESH
Since receiving a Grammy nomination for her vocal contribution to The Roots hit “Don’t Feel Right” in 2007, the singer, emcee, and songwriter Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh has been making waves in the Indie music scene as a solo artist and is only just beginning. Maimouna has shared stages with music giants such as Nas, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah, Bobby Mcferrin, Sting, Talib Kweli, Jill Scott, D’angelo, Maxwell, Aloe Blacc, Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def), Dead Prez, Angelique Kidjo, Lalah Hathaway, Will Downing, Femi Kuti, Cody ChestnuTT, and more.
Mumu Fresh has traveled world wide as a supporting vocalist for legends such as Congolese Vocal Acapella group Zap Mama, Late night Jimmy Fallon’s band, The Roots and is currently on tour with Grammy & Oscar award winner, Common.
Youssef’s unparalleled songwriting skills make her a force to be reckoned with. She’s written songs for Walt Disney High School Musical’s own Vanessa Hudgins, and Common among others. Youssef’s 2011 original release, “I got a man” produced by Dj Jazzy Jeff, was selected by BET as the theme song for their original movie “Being Mary Jane” Starring Gabrielle Union.

She released her first Solo EP, 'Black Magic Woman,' independently in March of 2011, and her highly anticipated and widely praised first full length solo album, 'The Blooming,' in September of the same year. Maimouna's 2014 project, “The Reintroduction of Mumu Fresh,” showcased her sharp rhyming skills as an emcee and her strong commitment to providing a balanced perspective on current social, racial, political, gender and class issues. Maimouna has three new projects scheduled to be released throughout 2017.
