"Muso" or "musos" are terms used widely in parts of the world to describe a musician or group of musicians with passion and dedication to their music.
A Can-Do Muso is a musician with challenges who is very passionate about their music.
We use the word "challenges" with Can-Do Musos because, quite often disability gets mis-interpreted as inability. People with challenges can overcome them and be empowered and successful.
Can Do Musos was established to promote and support musicians who face "challenges" in their lives from all over the world.
