Hi … we are Mubu! We produce, curate and programme brilliant jazz, world, roots, folk, contemporary classical, improvised music and beyond.
We work with some of the UK’s leading cultural organisations and festivals to independent producers, creating adventurous music and multi-arts performances, alongside workshops, community projects, and productions for families, children and schools.
Recent and ongoing projects we produce include 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 community-led programme of music in Falcon Lodge, Sutton Coldfield, with regular performances, gigs, music in schools, a community choir and free weekly instrumental lessons for all ages across the local community. We are also working as part of No.11 Arts to support city-wide community and neighbourhood arts in Birmingham.
