Born out of the desire to explore and blend a wide variety of often paradoxical musical influences, TapRoots is a new vision of cultural fusion from multi-instrumentalist and producer Matthew King. While the music is at once familiar - borrowing from elements of rock, reggae, salsa, soul, hip hop, samba, folkloric rhythms, and beyond - it taps into the roots of these traditions while imagining something refreshingly new. TapRoots brings together both the ancient and contemporary into a musical melting pot that bridges and defies genre. It calls the audience to listen in new ways, travel through the gateways between the seen and unseen, and celebrate our shared humanity as we work to heal our relationship to the planet, to history and to each other.
