It looks like the sultry sounds of Erykah Badu will be taking over Vancouver!
The soul diva along with The Roots will perform at the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival this summer. The two acts will headline in separate concerts on June 23rd and June 30th, respectively. And you can bet they’re going to give amazing shows; Badu’s recent New Amerykay albums have gained international acclaim and the Philadelphia hip hop crew The Roots are known for being the house band on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon; they have an explosive sound of soul, jazz and big ban grooves.
And all of this is just the tip of the iceberg, more than 11 concerts will be featured and tickets go on sale this weekend. The TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival takes place June 18th to July 1st.
