Video: Moor Mother – Zami

Philadelphia musician Camae Ayewa, aka Moor Mother, recently shared her new single titled ‘Zami’. Marking her first release with ANTI-, the powerful new track takes its name from Audre Lorde’s 1982 book.

“Using the lenses of Black Quantum Futurism, the lyrics speak to Time and Space, injustice, racism, erasure of African identity,” explains Ayewa. “‘Zami’ speaks of agency and something beyond freedom. It speaks of another future. It speaks about connections free from the stains of colonialism. It speaks about the expansive temporalities of Afro Diasporan people around the world.”
