Offstage Live: Music at the Museum featuring Dreamroot

Join us as Dreamroot performs virtually from the North Carolina Museum of Art! This  quintet from Durham, North Carolina, uses music as an agent for healing—for themselves and for others—as they create music as a refuge from chronic illness, racism, hatred, and the struggles of living in the 21st century. Dreamroot classifies itself as political jazz and neo-soul, drawing from elements of the music cultures of Africa and Europe. The collective includes bassist Ittai Korman, drummer Theous Jones, saxophonist and poet Serena Wiley, keyboardist and producer Joe MacPhail, and Grammy-nominated trumpeter Lynn Grissett.

Dreamroot’s recent release, Phases, is an emotional and provocative exploration of healing through personal and collective creation of genre-defying music. Phases simultaneously grooves and contemplates the reality of the modern age as it draws inspiration from those icons who have walked the lines between genres.
