Mellow Baku and The Spark Arts for Children present in partnership with Attenborough Arts Centre and Warwick Arts Centre
Mmm Ahh Whoosh
A brand-new gig for 0–5-year olds which will immerse you in a swirling world of colour and take you on a musical journey through afro-centric soulful folk, jazz and scat.
Inspired by our first breaths, hums and gurgles, combining music, animation and dance to celebrate the wondrous world of the language of children.
Mellow Baku has performed across the UK and around the world for over a decade. She is a unique and charismatic live performer. Her cultural heritage influences the fusing of soul, folk and jazz improvisation.
