It was with deep and sincere sadness, and complete shock, that we learned of the untimely passing of our good friend, Mat Fox, Musical Director of Kinetika Bloco on 7 February.
Mat was a true Warrior, a real, honest to goodness, grass roots worker. Using his role as a teacher in South London schools, and as leader of his wonderful Kinetika Bloco project that he founded in 2000, he championed diversity and was an ambassador for gender equality. Together we opened a pathway for a number of our current and former Tomorrow’s Warriors to further their musical careers.
Mat will be greatly missed by so many of the young people and their parents, and those of us who knew him as a friend and fellow soldier, working in the field to bring about a positive change in young people’s lives.
All of us at Tomorrow’s Warriors send our love and warmest condolences to Mat’s family and friends, and to members of the extended Kinetika Bloco family.
RIP Mat, and heartfelt thanks for your outstanding service and generous contributions to music and young people.
Gary Crosby OBE
