The Goldie Project

The Goldie Project

Jungle and drum n bass star Goldie takes on a fascinating new musical challenge for BBC Two this autumn, as he explores the transformative power of music in young people’s lives today.

This new three-part series showcases the stories and successes of gifted young musicians aged 16-24, whose lives have been energised, improved, even reformed through their relationship with music.

Together with composer Guy Chambers and saxophonist/composer Soweto Kinch, Goldie embarks on a nationwide search for young musicians to put on a concert in an iconic venue.

The series starts with the search for talent, shining a light on the public, voluntary and private sectors, which are doing exceptional grass roots work every day.

Once chosen, the musicians undertake two residencies, where they are given an intensive schedule of tuition, under the guidance of some of the best names in the business. The series climaxes with a concert in front of an invited audience in October.

Over the course of the project, the series shows how music has the power to enable young people to overcome challenging circumstances and to enhance and change people’s lives.
