Rising Stars Roots of Music
Roots of Music
The Roots of Music is an organization dedicated to teaching children the art, discipline, and technique of playing music. Based out of New Orleans, the program is supported by a number of grass roots Louisianan musicians including Derek Tabb, Ani Difranco, and Trombone Shorty.
When The Roots was selected by StubHub as the company's inaugural "Rising Star", we were sent to New Orleans to film the kids at work for an unforgettable week in December. The Roots of Music went on to march in the Rose Parade in Pasadena, CA, and this video piece went on to raise over $50,000 in funds for the program.
