The Godfather of Neo-Soul, Roy Ayers once said, “The true beauty of music is that it connects people.”
Mirror and Mountain was founded on the same idea. We have always believed that there is a strong connection between art, the people that create it and making our society better. The expressive nature of music can often help us to see ourselves and others differently. It has played an important role throughout human history in challenging our perceptions of one another and serving as a universal language with which we can communicate and learn. In our view, music and the arts in general represent the best of humanity.
For these reasons, it is vital that we support the artists that enrich our lives so much with their work. If art is able to flourish, then so will the rest of our society. The organisations participating in this fund are doing just that: supporting artists to do what they do best and helping us all to live better lives as a result.
