performs new material ‘South London’
for Boiler Room
watch premiere via The Quietus here
Boiler Room have worked with Philadelphia-based interdisciplinary artist, activist and political agitator, Moor Mother to produce a visceral live performance in a South London estate. Filmed in late April by Boiler Room’s Sonny Jake, it features three unheard poems: two unheard gems from her archive, and one specifically written for the brutalist, council flat setting in Brandon Estate, Kennington.
Moor Mother may just be the most radical Afrofuturist in a few years, projecting both the cathartic anger of punk and otherworldliness of Sun Ra in her work.
