"PPP took me to London and Madrid with my son, which is really hard to get to from the Indigenous territory. It was really good. PPP is our partner and the team supported me producing a CD of traditional Wauja songs and connecting the new generation in the village to the UK young climate activists."
“PPP puts culture centre stage in deprived areas like Rio’s favelas. Paul Heritage and his team offered me the opportunity to make new connections and expand my work as an artist."
"PPP took me to Xingu in 2017 and I could learn about Indigenous culture and music. We jammed and made music in 3 languages - English, Portuguese and Kuikuro - I was told it was the first new song made there in 200 years! It was an amazing experience that I will never forget."Read more
