It delivered 5 tours, launching international careers of 2 singers including recording contracts, BBC award nominations, and national TV, newspaper and radio coverage. 

In 2012 WAW devised and raised £250k to run a three year project to develop music touring targeting Britain’s Somali and South Asian most marginalised communities. All aspects of delivery were managed including budget, booking, producing and successfully delivering 6 tours> it generated £280k ticket income and audiences in excess of 30,000. To do this required understanding diverse communities and bespoke communication strategies in non-mainstream media.
