Maimouna “Mumu Fresh” Youssef is a seasoned Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, producer, and emcee. She received a Grammy nomination for her contribution on the 2007 Roots hit, “Don’t Feel Right”, in the category of best rap song. She has swapped musical licks with artists such as Angelique Kidjo, Common, Nas, Dead Prez, Wilco, Zap Mama, Cody Chesnutt, Martin Luther, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, and Talib Kweli to name a few. As a collaborator and band member, Maimouna has rocked the stages of many renowned venues such as Denver Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater, Switzerland’s Montreux Jazz Festival, New York City’s Legendary Carnegie Hall, and Radio City Music Hall. Youssef’s musical endeavors with Grammy Award winning producer James Poyser were
a springboard for her to make her big screen debut in Dave Chappelle’s hip hop documentary “Block Party.”After the birth of her son, she took a short hiatus from the music business. She released her 1st solo EP Black Magic Woman on March 1, 2011, which led her to headline 2 of Washington DC’s most prestigious venues, The Kennedy Center and The Carter Barron Amphitheater. In Sept 2011, she released her 1st full-length album "The Blooming," which received The Washington Post’s and The Washington City Paper’s votes for “Top 5 best albums released in 2011.” Later that year, she teamed up with her long-time friend Brian Kyle Atkins, who was one of Okay Player’s pioneering forces, and the personal videographer to rapper Common. Together they created the very first visual for her leading single, “I Got A Man” produced by the Hip Hop icon, Dj Jazzy Jeff. In Nov 2011, Mumu was awarded the title of “Artist of The Year”, by the non-profit organization One Common Unity for her dedication and commitment to empowering underserved youth.
