Legendary GRAMMY award-winning crew The Roots are one of the best-known and most respected hip-hop acts in the business. Prolific and progressive, they were named one of the greatest live bands around by Rolling Stone and serve as the official house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Forsaking usual hip-hop protocol, they are endlessly creative, whether with their own material or through numerous collaborations. The Roots Picnic, a yearly star-studded mix of musicians, has become a celebrated institution, and most recently, they are working on animated live-action and animated children’s series in partnership with Amazon. They’ve gone platinum, they’ve gone gold, and they bring the house down every time.
Further details regarding the 2019 TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival will be made available soon.
