About the Event
Heralded as the “Tina Turner of Guinea,” singer and songwriter Natu Camara has established herself as an impassioned performer whose commitment to social justice has solidified her unique presence in global music.
Raised in Guinea, she is one of its brightest musical stars and a committed activist for the empowerment and education of girls and women in west Africa. Now a Harlem resident, her performance in her own backyard at the Harlem Stage Gatehouse with her six-piece band will pull from across her catalog, as well as new material. While she performs her songs in five languages, they need no translation. Everyone feels the power of energy. And everyone speaks the language of the heart.
Natu’s foundation, DIMEDI (“Child”), supports local organizations to mentor and empower young girls and support education as a tool to reduce poverty in Guinea. She finds a way to speak to the silent minority through her music. The foundation is quickly garnering support from the Guinea government, and the US Embassy in Guinea.
