Guinea native, New Yorker, and singer-songwriter-humanitarian Natu Camara brings her high-octane performance to BAM! Showcasing her unique blend of Afro-rock, pop, and soul, it reflects the range of heroes influencing her sound: Miriam Makeba, Nina Simone, Mory Kante, Fela Kuti, and Baaba Maal.
In the early 2000s, Camara led West Africa’s first all-female hip-hop group, the Ideal Black Girls (IBG). As a member of IBG, Camara released Guinèya Moumonèra (It’s Not a Shame to Be a Woman)—a multiplatinum opus advocating for women’s rights—followed years later by Dimedi (“child” in her native language, Susu). On this inspirational solo debut, which underscores the significance of children having positive role models, Camara builds intercultural bridges through universally beloved rhythms and lyrics in five languages.
