WMI PLUS At Home with Natu Camara
WMI PLUS At Home experiences bring music from around the world into the comfort of your home. Renowned artists share their lives, instruments, and stories from their personal environments, bringing an intimacy and uniqueness to each event. These talks are led by fellow musicians, journalists, and ethnomusicologists. Live captioning will be provided during the event.
We are thrilled to provide these events for FREE. If you are able to make a donation of any amount while registering for this event, it will help us to keep the music playing. THANK YOU!

One of the brightest stars coming out of the West African nation of Guinea (now based in NYC) and founder of West Africa’s first all-female hip hop group Ideal Black Girls (IBG), Natu Camara is a singer/songwriter who weaves beautiful musical tapestries of her beloved homeland. Singing in five languages, she uses her songs to build cultural bridges and to share her commitment to the education and empowerment of women and girls. Natu welcomes us into her studio for music and a conversation with Darek Mazzone (Host of “Wo’ Pop” on KEXP Radio), followed by a Q&A with attendees.
WMI PLUS and WMI PLUS At Home experiences are supported by a grant from Con Edison.
