The work of pianist and conductor, Daniel Barenboim and French hip-hop artist, Akhenaton teach the concepts of Great Music and each class is an adventure!


Dubbing History

Two English dubs are known to exist for the series. As indicated in the 2015 Pilot trailer and the official 2018 trailer, the series was originally dubbed into English in the United Kingdom. The cast seems to differ between the two trailers, however, the lone exception being Joe Mills.

In late 2019, the series was made available on Amazon Prime and Kidstream, this particular release, however, features an entirely different dub with an American voice cast. Due to the lack of voice actor credits, the cast is very unclear. But it can be assumed the dub was recorded in LA as a couple of voices sound extremely similar to Max Mittelman.

While the US dub can be easily found on Kidstream, the UK dub is far more difficult to find.
