Salon Stage: Maimouna Youssef

Maimouna Youssef lives and creates art in the slashes and the hyphens. She's a rapper/singer/songwriter/poet. Her music blends hip-hop and R&B and jazz and soul and funk. She tells stories in her music of empowerment/resilience and struggle and joy. And she's probably worked with one of your favorite rappers.

Youssef has teamed up with DJ Dummy to form the group Vintage Babies. On “Salon Stage,” the duo brought performed cuts from their 2017 release "Vintage Babies.” As Youssef puts it, she is making soul, in both its sonic form and visceral feeling, "relevant again."

Tune into SalonTV's live shows, "Salon Talks" and "Salon Stage", daily at noon ET / 9 a.m. PT and 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT, streaming live on Salon, Facebook and Periscope.
