Our Mission

UMAT is a grassroots community music company (CIC) based in London. This not for profit group was founded by vocalist Stephen Pierre in March 2018.

We promote aspiring and seasoned creative talent, support community engagement and other good causes.

Empowering equality and diversity is at the forefront of everything we do. Our collective of musicians range from students and graduates from London’s leading music conservatoires.

Due to the popularity of The Bermondsey Square Jazz Days and Live Music Events presented at the Bermondsey Blue Market, UMAT was nominated for a Mayor of London Culture and Creative Award in 2019.

In 2020 UMAT won a Southwark Business Excellence Award, Category: Contribution To The Community.

In May 2021 UMAT presented their first outdoor Jazz event at St John’s Church Garden Waterloo. UMAT was recognised as part of London’s Festival of Ideas Summer 2021.
