Episode notes

Two little boys meet in Year One and Year Two. The older one impressed the younger one by standing up to his sister. Now they impress each other in different ways - one as a Grammy-award winning musician and composer and the other as one of London's most successful music event organisers. This is a friendship with an extraordinary soundtrack.

Ssega is the musician and artist Love Ssega < >, original frontman-songwriter of Grammy-winning group, Clean Bandit, and also founder of Black-led clean air movement LIVE + BREATHE < >. A previous Artist in Residence for Philharmonia Orchestra, this summer he has been co-commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company and Good Chance Theatre for ASSEMBLED, premiering on Saturday 6 July 2024 in Stratford-Upon-Avon <>.
