About Jason Wilson & Sumach Roots
There’s never been a more important time to know our history. Understanding that the fundamental challenges we face as a society today are not dissimilar to those our ancestors faced gives us a fresh perspective on our lives. One of the common threads is music and, with that as its foundation, Sumach Roots (the album and live show) takes audiences on a bold and innovative exploration of Toronto’s evolution over the past three hundred years. The brainchild of two-time JUNO nominee and best-selling historian Jason Wilson, Sumach Roots draws from a deep well of sounds—from traditional British folk to bebop jazz and classic reggae—in order to tell the stories of those who built Toronto, both literally and culturally.
A 7-piece reggae band based out of Toronto. The music is inspired by everyone from the legendary Studio One, to Chronixx, Midnite, and Exco Levi. These boys keep the grooves funky and fresh.
