Metropolis Ensemble performs with The Roots Crew on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show
Tuesday night, the Metropolis Ensemble of New York City, under Andrew Cyr, played with The Roots Crew on the NBC Tonight Show hosted by Jimmy Fallon in Rockefeller Center (link). The main musical number occurred at the end of the program (after Fallon interviewed Charlize Theron and Josh Hartnett). The music was an odd combination of microtonal computer music, percussion, and the hip-hop of the Crew. The effect was original and hard to explain.
The Roots is offering a new show “And Then You Shoot Your Cousin” on iTunes; I’ll have to look into it soon.
