Listen on

Episode notes

Beethoven’s Ode To Joy is one of the world’s most recognisable and inspiring tunes. It’s become a global anthem for unity and defiance - from the Tiananmen Square student uprisings to the fall of the Berlin Wall to protesting Brexit. But where does it come from? And what makes it so powerful? Of course, music is still a driver for change. Founding member of Grammy-winning chart toppers, Clean Bandit, Love Ssega, reveals how he’s using his work to drive home the climate crisis message.


Listen now! We bet you’re more into choral than you think.
