Preview - Mim Suleiman
Performing at Buyers Club in Liverpool on 9 March, Mim Suleiman is a boundary crossing singer-songwriter, who blends traditional Taarab vibes with dub and disco. Her music combines drum machines, percussion, synths and ukulele to devastating effect.
Originally from Zanzibar, but now residing in Sheffield, Suleiman has collaborated with some of the biggest names in Africa and beyond, including Baaba Maal, Amadou & Mariam, Bassekou Kouyate, Fatoumata Diawara, Africa Express, Damon Albarn, Paul McCartney and Robert Plant.
Alongside Suleiman, resident DJ Giovanna will be providing her latest finds of party music from around the world.
The event is presented by SisBis and produced in association with Africa Oyé. Designed as an open space for all, the show will raise funds and collect donations for MRANG, Merseyside Refugee & Asylum Seekers Pre & Postnatal Support Group.
