Who Are WE?
Unity Music Arts Team is a grassroots community interest company that was founded by vocalist Stephen Pierre in March 2018.
UMAT aim to promote aspiring and seasoned creative talent, support community engagement and good causes. Empowering diversity and equality is at the forefront of everything we do. Our collective of musicians ranges from students and graduates from leading London music conservatoires.
Due to the popularity of The Bermondsey Square Jazz Days and live music events presented at The Blue Market, Bermondsey, UMAT was nominated for a Mayor of London Award in 2019.
Here at UMAT, we are very proud to announce that the Bermondsey Square Jazz is making its 2021 comeback!
A new lineup of musicians are invited to join the host and organiser Stephen Pierre at each event. Featuring many fine students & graduates from London’s leading music conservatoires.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we were forced to cancel many of our booked live music events in 2020.
We decided to volunteer the use of our time and the Unity Music Arts Team vehicle to support home deliveries on behalf of Southwark Foodbank and Walworth Golden Oldies Community Project. We are proud to have supported elderly and vulnerable people during these difficult and uncertain times.
In 2021, we will resume events from June. Read more to see our latest updates.
