At 23, Maimouna Youssef (listen) has long been identified with a voice beyond her years, probably because she's been immersed in jazz, musical theater and indigenous singing styles since she was in elementary school. One of the Baltimore soul scene's most significant jewels, she was exposed to a wider audience on The Roots' "Don't Feel Right" from the 2006 album "Game Theory." Because of her influences and wide range of professional collaborations, she can switch fluidly between jazz vocal styling, antebellum field hollers and hip-hop emceeing. Youssef joins Akua Kyerematin and C. Love for Hot Buttered Soul at Mirrors tonight.
