As a part of the 2021 World Festival, KCRW and the Hollywood Bowl present Kamasi Washington and Earl Sweatshirt.
Hosted by KCRW Music Director and DJ Anne Litt!
Saxophone virtuoso and widely lauded bandleader Kamasi Washington introduced hip-hop audiences to the lineage of spiritual jazz and hard bop with 2015’s The Epic and 2018’s Heaven and Earth, heralded as some of the best music of the 2010s by The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Vice, Stereogum, and many more.
Earl Sweatshirt is the virtuosic byproduct of Los Angeles’ fertile ground, where hip-hop sowed its seeds and historic cultural movements were born. The prodigiously gifted writer, lyricist, and producer grew from the zeitgeist from which contemporary collectives in hip-hop today were predicated.
