Promoting community through Music & Nature

 
What we do:
 
 We are Musicians who use our art-form to promote community, connection and curiosity.  We operate on a social enterprise model, channelling profits from our work with teams and the public back into our projects to amplify our impact and reach more vulnerable groups.  We are passionate about tackling social isolation, discrimination and exclusion and work with a number of partners in and around Sussex to affect positive transformation.  We are always looking for support funding our work and have current opportunities for sponsorship exposure through our films.  Get in touch if you want to find out more.

“It was so much fun to get out of the office and spend some time out in nature, using your senses in a way you don’t usually get to do and working together to create sound. It’s team building with a difference!” 
Events Manager Brighton and Hove Chamber
 
“Unite the beat provided an inspiring week of family-friendly workshops as part of our summer programme. Unite the beat offer a unique way for people to connect with nature through sound. The experience they offered was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who took part.  Emily and Malik were a delight to work with.“

ABOUT US 
 
Malik Tokwe, Co-Founder, Producer
 
Malik has been making music since he was 14, though it has been part of his family since long before he was born.  
Whilst he started with spoken word and rap, he soon developed a passion for sampling (reusing sections of
recorded  music), as it allowed him and his community access to instrumental melodies for their music.  He brings his
wealth of experience to the project and will fuse the sounds made into a cohesive track that you can be proud of. 
 
Emily Robertson, Co-Founder
 
Emily has a Bachelors Degree in Creative Expressive Therapies and a Masters in Social Work.   She has experience
facilitating groups around the world, including working with previously trafficked women and girls in South Africa,
Vietnamese School Children and Non-Government Organisations in multiple countries.  More recently, she has been
developing her own identity as a musician, experimenting with songwriting and performing. 
 
 
Together they have facilitated flash mobs, won competitions for innovative art installations and have travelled the world.  They bring a unique fusion of cultures to their work which will allow you to benefit from their diverse musical heritage.  They are in the band Fresh School Buddha which gives a sense of their musical preferences and fusion of creative styles.   Their music is widely available on sites such as itunes.  You can check them out here.
