TapRoots is an alchemical cauldron of rock, reggae, salsa, soul, folkloric rhythms, and beyond, tapping into the roots of these traditions while imagining something refreshingly new. TapRoots seeks to travel beyond the boundaries of traditional popular music, bringing the listener on a journey filled with catchy hooks, pulsing rhythms, thought provoking lyrics and intricate musical motifs, all fueled by a unique synthesis of sound, spirit and passion into a powerful, deeply rooted, listening experience.

Inspired by a shared love of deceased Valley activist Julius Ford and positive music, Rebirth—Cinamon Blair, Ian Hamel, Jamemurrell Stanley, Karim Sunum and Irene I-Shea Shaikly—is a celebration of eternal spirit. With diverse influences such as Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Steel Pulse, The Beatles, The Police, Nina Simone and Bill Withers, the group folds "Afro-influenced folk," funk, soul, reggae, Latin and hip-hop elements into its expansive sound.
