Millennium bim supports the very first intercontinental tour by Mozambique’s phenomenal ‘Gran Mah’. The ‘We Got 2 Move Tour’ is on from the 7th to the 22nd of July, taking them to Portugal, United States of America and Canada.
The ‘We Got 2 Move Tour’ began in Portugal with concerts in Pombal and Figueiró dos Vinhos and the Gran Mahs are now on their way to two full performances in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon. They will then travel to the United States for a concert in Annapolis Maryland and two more in Washington DC. The tour ends with a concert at the Matapa Festival in Hamilton, Ontario, in Canada.
The idea of this tour came from an invitation for the band to perform at the Matapa Music Festival in Canada. The Gran Mahs wanted to take advantage of the trip abroad to perform in other countries.
After a fundraising period in Maputo to support the financial costs for this project, which included a crowdfunding campaign through the Millennium bim network, the Bank decided to make this tour more viable by directly supporting the Gran Mah initiative.
“The partnership with Millennium bim is, for Gran Mah, a strong lever for the realisation of this dream; our first Intercontinental Tour. The motto of Millennium bim is ‘Here I can make it’ and we, with Millennium bim, we did make it! “.
According to Millennium bim administrator Nuno Vaz, “this partnership reaffirms our commitment to the Mozambican culture and our support for young talent.”
This support, which will be extended to other initiatives of the Bank, comes from the fact that this band stands for values with which the Millennium bim brand connects to, such as dynamism, vigour and willingness to embrace new challenges. It is another opportunity to take the good name of Mozambique to other horizons.
