The music initiative that gave the likes of Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk and N-Dubz their big break is on a mission to find undiscovered talent in Barking and Dagenham.
Bigga Fish will work with the Barking and Dagenham Community Music Service and Havering Music School which have received a share of £100,000 from the Mayor’s Music Fund to increase opportunities for young Londoners to develop their music skills.
The project, called ‘Remix the Mix’, intends to bridge the gap between orchestral performance and urban music-making.
Things kick off in autumn this year when a talent show to find new potential will be held, and those selected will receive training in composition and vocal performance followed by a show in April 2014.
Sara Conway from Bigga Fish explained: “We are looking at bringing together the different elements of music and reaching out to young people who are not reached by traditional performance.”
