Next at the Kennedy Center “The Roots Residency” 

Friday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m.

The third episode of NEXT AT THE KENNEDY CENTER will feature the Grammy Award-winning hip hop group The Roots. Anchored by an unforgettable concert in the Kennedy Center’s Concert Hall, the special explores how The Roots continue to push the boundaries of their art form while using their platform as the inaugural artist-in-residence of the Center’s Hip Hop Culture Program to foster the next generation of cultural leaders.

Known for electrifying live performances that blend hip hop, jazz, rap, soul and funk, The Roots regularly sell out concert venues when they’re not serving as the house band for THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON. “The Roots Residency” takes music fans beyond the stage, coupling live concert footage with a look at the band’s curatorial endeavors, masterclasses and humanitarian activities from their residency at the Kennedy Center. Respected cultural trailblazers, frontmen Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter are committed to inspiring and educating rising artists.
