A talented Haringey music act is among fourteen from across the UK who will receive financial help to support international touring and promotion.

Bo Ningen, whose supporting label is based in Haringey, will be awarded £23,000 as part of the Music Export Growth Scheme, announced by the government’s Trade Minister, Lord Livingston, today.

He said: “We couldn't have made this US trip and all the amazing shows out here happen without this export fund.  It was a massive help to us and gave us a great opportunity to perform Coachella, one of world's acclaimed music festivals.”

The Music Export Growth Scheme was set up by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and the BPI (British Recorded Music Industry) to help small independent music companies promote their artists overseas.
