One of the 'greatest acts in the world' says Rolling Stone, The Roots are classified as 'hip-hop' but break all convention with an eclectic, rule-bending jazz-influenced sound and live instrumentation. Philly boys, they started out busking on South Street before going on to win three Grammy® Awards and taking the stage as the house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Make sure to experience their spin on Paris of 100 years ago as they join forces with a French chanteuse.
