WHAT WE DO

Worldwide Musicians United promotes personal development, community empowerment, human rights, gender equality, diversity, and inclusion by fostering creativity all across the globe. We speak the one true universal language: music. And we use that language to give a voice to the voiceless.

WHERE WE WORK

COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT PROJECT

Peace and Unity

Many of these talented young people have been directly impacted by the deadly scourges of AIDS, war, and severe poverty in their country. But that hasn’t stopped them from performing and tutoring in local schools or raising money for the most vulnerable women and children in their Kampala community. WWMU has rewarded their efforts not only with professional recordings, but also with a brand new studio to benefit the entire community; a workshop for the development of novel skills and dreams.

Brighter Together

Produced by WWMU. Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2017.

"Brighter Together" was written, performed and recorded by a group of musicians--young and old, from around the world--who never set foot in the same room throughout the process. It just goes to show that the distance between us is smaller than it seems, and that when we come together, we make our little planet a whole lot brighter. We hope you remember that the world is a better place with YOU in it!
