Ropeadope Radio – Episode 3 (Ropeadope Roots)

Ropeadope is often called a Jazz label, but is also well known for crossing genres with Electronic, Hip-Hop, and Soul. This month Louis and Fabian dig in to the more unusual recordings in Roots, Americana, and Blues for a session dubbed ‘Ropeadope Roots’. While the genres may vary, there is a common source in the Blues or American and other folkloric styles. Music from Mexican rancheros, Gospel a cappella vocalist, Southern rock, and even old school reggae punctuate this unique collection.
