Welcome to the latest episode of Londonist Out Loud, a podcast about London, as recently recommended by The Telegraph.
Finding Rhythms was founded in 2012 and runs music workshops in both prisons and the community. Their work focuses on engaging and guiding offenders, and empowering them to make positive decisions regarding their own future, the main aim being to tackle the UK’s 68% re-offending rate.
As well as explaining the background of the movement, Emily and Robin elaborate on the ethos behind Finding Rhythms, the difficulties they have encountered, and some of the positive results they have already had.
We are also treated to two songs created as part of their workshops. You can listen and download here.
