About the Company: Mama Foundation of the Arts
Mama's mission is to present, preserve, and promote the history and fundamentals of gospel, jazz, and rhythm and blues music for current and future generations. The Foundation has established a cultural space in Harlem where youth and adults have access to quality training and employment as performing artists.
The Foundation was inspired by the worldwide success of our award-winning musical, Mama, I Want to Sing. A combination of arts education, public workshops, and live events contribute to Harlem's resurgence as an artistic and cultural destination.
