Music is the answer

'Music is the answer' is a short documentary made by Capital Xtra DJ, presenter and blogger, Yinka Bokinni, in close collaboration with Anglia Ruskin University.

I couldn’t speak through words, but I could speak through music

The film explores the healing power of music, inspired by research conducted at the University.

During the course of the documentary, Yinka meets ARU students, musicians, dancers, DJ Gin and rapper Kojey Radical.

They share their stories of how music has improved their wellbeing, and helped them connect with others and cope with life’s various challenges. Professor Jorg Fachner also talks about his work, and the ways in which music can be used to treat depression.

This documentary was made as part of #WhatWeDo, a short season of creative collaborations with our students about the culture and ideas that emerge from Anglia Ruskin University.
