The best description for Mama Alto comes directly from the biography on Mama's website - "Mama Alto is a gender transcendent diva, cabaret artiste, jazz singer and community activist." Mama is also extremely fascinating to converse with. Our chat went for over two hours and so there are three episodes of our conversation. We discuss art, politics and Mama's inspirations. Mama is a joy to spend time with, and I hope you enjoy the time you get to spend listening to her.
