This exciting showcase and concert is a culmination of an international creative partnership with Madula and MamaMusic School Uganda, joined in the UK by New Vic Borderlines.
Madula delivers creative & cultural projects for children, young people & community groups across The Midlands, developing social cohesion, empowering people & reducing isolation through music, dance & other creative engagements.
