about my work

Through musical storytelling, my performances explore the cultural and political landscape of the African diaspora. My work is inspired by the Black classical music tradition, various West African xylophone traditions, Africana womanist discourse, Afrofuturist aesthetics, and maat, "truth,"the keystone of Egyptian philosophy. Channeling these technologies, my music strives to activate the radical power of imagination and move us towards collective liberation and the embodiment of maat.
