#FUTUREROOTS was a concert series in New York City which celebrated “New World” Worldwild Music: sounds being taken to dizzying new heights and varieties by today’s generation of DJs and musicians who have had the world at their fingertips (AKA the internet). This “re-discovery” – where musicians from the Latin & African diaspora to DJs in the United States, Europe & beyond explore their own roots, collaborate with others halfway across the planet, and blend the sounds they know so well like Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electronic and Club music of every variety – this is a series for that New World sound as it continues to grow.
