The idea sprang from a conversation about the orchestral scene and how orchestral musicians could be integrated into urban contemporary music. Members of the magazine team were introduced to the work of Urban Soul Orchestra, who have played all sorts of alternative music including reggae. After seeing the USO in action we just had to approach them about our project. The creative sessions, facilitated by Small Green Shoots, began in June, and are being videoed and made available on the RWD Youtube channel.
