Maudeline Swaray

For the past 20 years, Maudeline has been writing, recording, and performing original songs for audiences in the United States and Africa. Her music conveys a message of peace and unity with a specific emphasis on speaking to the Liberian community. As a Liberian, Maudeline has seen first-hand the impact of the ongoing war in Liberia that has killed at least 250,000 people. She wrote and performed "Let's Come Together, Once More" in response to this experience. This song of encouragement and reconciliation was used widely in the early nineties when the war was its height, providing an anthem of hope and courage to Liberians everywhere. Maudeline's goal is to use her art to help bring about change for Liberian people, so that they may regain a sense of value that has been taken away from years of warfare. She creates songs to bring about a united front, to cause an excitement that bridges the divides, which she's performed at political rallies, parties, reunions, and community gatherings.
