Jayda G

Jayda G’s debut album “Significant Changes" has a quality to it that’s hard to place in one space and time. At times, it's studio 54 at its peak, whilst at others it's tackling some the biggest issues of the present day. We’re used to club tracks sampling snippets of old documentaries and classic films, whereas on "Significant Changes'’ you’ll find Jayda using Orca cries and quotes from climate scientists. Jayda G sat down with Adam Corner, journalist and Research Director at Climate Outreach to talk about the melding of her music career and conservationist work and her series of talks engaging a new generation of music fans with the science behind the headlines. The next instalment of Jayda’s JMG Talks is scheduled for 22nd May at Giant Steps in Hackney Wick, tickets available via the DICE app. Remember to rate and subscribe to the Ninja Tune podcast wherever you get it.
