Ama-zing Harmonies was founded in March 2017 by Ama Shallangwa with the aim to work with the community to improve mental health, cultural understanding and all inclusiveness. We are a community singing group in North West Edinburgh that brings people together through music and food. Singing is a fantastic way to spread happiness, improve and promote health and well-being, alleviates stress, and creates a sense of community to enhance wellbeing and unite people together.
Through singing we bring people together to network, build community, break isolation and celebrate our diversity as well as what we have in common. Sharing in our activities will help people get to know each other, increase a sense of belonging and cohesion, promote communal integration, and community development. Engaging the youth with activities will boost their confidence and increase participation.
