Music group

Mamyo Makandra is an initiative of poet and Spoken Word artist Dayenne Denneboom whose pseudonym is Mamyo Fu Mi Afo.

Mamyo is nothing more than a blanket made up of various pieces of fabric. The Mamyo was, among other things, used to convey messages. The word Makandra means together or communal. Dayenne Denneboom brings together various people with different talents to convey various messages in an artistic way.

For Keti Koti Club RIGHTABOUTNOW @ Dutch National Opera she brought together Meriam Sinester, Judith Sinester and Rasida Cummingsborg from the cultural group Awidya and Daniëlle Fosch from NAKS and Gun to sing about the abolition of physical slavery, in the context of 1 July.
