Crowds enjoyed a live performance of contemporary Ukrainian and Polish music from Midlands based Ukrainian band, MUHA (“… combining the melodic beauty of Eastern European folklore, North Indian Kathak rhythms, Cuban beats and original lyrics, they mesmerise with a musical feast rooted in the Slavonic tradition cultured from the world.”) in January 2024. The free event was co-designed with Welcome Refugees (Redditch and Bromsgrove) and Centrala, who use arts and culture to achieve inclusion and wellbeing for Central and Eastern European migrants. Attendees were also be treated to dance, food and craft workshops. This was the first in a series of events and activities celebrating the culture and creative talents of Eastern European migrants in the borough.
