We use music to bridge divides, connect communities, and heal the wounds of war.
After 5 years working under the banner of Musicians without Borders, we are proud to announce that our partner organization Musicians without Borders UK has established itself as an independent organization. From May 2015, Musicians without Borders UK will be known as Music Action International (MAI).
In May, two mixed bands from Mitrovica wrote, recorded and performed their new songs in the studios of Fontys Rock Academy. The Mitrovica Rock School has helped restore the divided war-torn town’s former identity as a breeding ground for great rock musicians.
To be a MwB Community Music Leader requires creativity. The situations in which we work are fragile and changing. Often resources are limited. Power can go off mid-workshop, a storm can flare up in seconds during rainy season, the mood of the children participating can be high or low.
