If you tuned in to BBC2 at 9.00pm on 26th March to watch Goldie’s Band: By Royal Appointment, you’ll now know that NYJO vocalist Kwabena was one of the talented young musicians selected by Goldie, and a number of musical mentors – Soweto Kinch, Cerys Matthews, Steve Abbott, Guy Chambers and Ms Dynamite – to form a band that represents “the sound of Britain today”.

Goldie and his mentoring team travelled all over Britain, listening to and assessing a varied range of youngsters – all from disadvantaged backgrounds and all with a passion for music. Cerys and Steve heard Kwabena at The Cockpit, rehearsing with NYJO – Cerys and Kwabena also performed a gospel duet together – before meeting with the other mentors to decide on the band’s final line-up.

According to programme director Craig Blackhurst, the selection process was “…painful and difficult…” but ultimately 12 young musicians with genuine potential were identified and chosen for the band – Kwabena amongst them.

Kwabena Adjepong & Goldie’s Band – the story continues…Next week’s episode – which airs on BBC2 at 9.00pm on 2nd April – follows the harnessing these 12 disparate talents into a fully-functioning band. We’ll see them taking part in a residential workshop, writing and arranging original material, in preparation for the following week’s finale of this 3-part documentary – an exclusive concert at Buckingham Palace, with Prince Harry as guest of honour.

Tune in Sunday to find out how they all get on!
