THE ROOTS: TINY DESK CONCERT DEBUTS TODAY VIA NPR MUSIC

GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum hip-hop icons  star in the latest installment of NPR Music’s iconic Tiny Desk concert series, set to premiere on NPR.org/music today. The legendary Roots crew performed “It Ain’t Fair” from the original soundtrack to the critically acclaimed motion picture .

“‘It Ain’t Fair’ was designed to emphasize the importance of social justice through the prism of late-sixties Detroit, which means many things culturally and politically, and also certain things musically. Music has the power to express both anguish and hope,” explains The Roots drummer and producer Questlove.

From Kathryn Bigelow, two-time Academy Award®- winning director of THE HURT LOCKER and ZERO DARK THIRTY, and Annapurna Pictures, DETROIT captures one of the most terrifying events during the riots that took place over five tumultuous summer days in 1967. The DETROIT Original Motion Picture Soundtrack captures light amidst one of America’s darkest times by illuminating the power at the heart of the Motown, Detroit, and late sixties cultures all at once. It’s the sound of change in the face of oppression and a moment of revolution brought to life in song and on screen.
