Hi … we are Mubu! We produce, curate and programme outstanding jazz, world, folk, contemporary classical, improvised music and beyond.
We work with some of the UK’s leading cultural organisations and festivals to create imaginative music and multi-arts performances, alongside brilliant workshops, community projects, and productions for families, children and schools.
Find out more about some of the recent Projects we have produced – from the ever-popular monthly Musical Picnic series at Symphony Hall Birmingham (which we estimate has seen over 15,000 visits from families, parents and children since we began in 2011), to programming 14 days of improvising musicians around the streets of Birmingham for the city’s International Dance Festival.
In the previous twelve months, we have programmed and produced for the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, the Birmingham Weekender Festival and Appetite’s World In One City International Feast. In partnership with THSH, we are currently producing Live In The Lodge – a year-long (and, we hope, much longer!) community-led programme of music in Falcon Lodge, Sutton Coldfield, with regular performances, concerts, gigs, music in schools, a community choir and free instrumental lessons for all ages. We are also very excited to be working as part of No.11 Arts to support city-wide community and neighbourhood arts in Birmingham.
