About the Concert
"Ahmir 'Questlove' Thompson just might be the closest thing we have to a hip-hop Zelig... expanding the assumed limits of hip-hop..." -Pitchfork
Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, the charismatic drummer and producer of the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop group The Roots, comes to BAM with an immersive musical experience. Enlisting a stellar lineup of artists, Questlove and musicians perform a free-flowing playlist-a kinetic mix of songs and sounds from unexpected musical bedfellows-that celebrates and reflects our current shuffle culture. Conceived and curated by Questlove. Produced by BAM.
