The award-winning composer and producer Benson Taylor will be heading to Uganda for World Refugee Day to do writing and recording workshops with musicians in the refugee camp.
Benson Taylor has had composer credits on TV series such as Suits, Grey’s Anatomy, Orange Is The New Black, The Big Bang Theory, Two and Half Men, and Breaking Bad, just to name a few.
For World Refugee Day on 20 June, Taylor is joining forces with the United Nation’s World Food Programme to travel to Bidibidi refugee camp in Uganda to help aspiring refugee musicians.
