Outdoor Live In-Person Event Presents
The Sound of (Black) Music
6:30 pm EDT/GMT-4
The uplifting spirit of Black roots music ripples through two weekends this July, with Black Roots Summer, presented in association with Electric Root and curated by jazz vocalist Michael Mwenso and producer Jono Gasparro.
BLACK ROOTS SUMMER
Conceived as a platform to create a creative healing space for a troupe of predominantly BIPOC artists to develop a series of new concerts in collaboration and fellowship with one another, Black Roots Summer will convene a group of over 20 vocalists, musicians, dancers, and creative artists for a two-week residency resulting in three original concerts.
30 minutes before the performance, Black Roots Summer co-director Kamilah Long will introduce the audience to various artists from the company, prompting discussions on the creative process, the future of Black music, and more.
