Joel Karabo Elliott (JKE) is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, musical healer and curator of the musical ecology collective Roots Grown Deep. Musically, his sound is a unique and natural fusion of multi-continental roots, journeying fluidly through the indigenous, classical, jazz and folk traditions of southern Africa, America and the Caribbean. His 2016 double album release Grow Within And You Shall Not Go Without was produced by Roots Grown Deep’s eclectic South African ensemble which includes Msaki, Nono Nkoane, Naftali, Francois le Roux, Nkoto Malebye, Tumi Mogorosi, Nelius Nortje, Sibusile Xaba and Stompie Selibe.

Through musical and ecological education, JKE & Roots Grown Deep channel interconnected earth-scapes and ancestral wisdom to recreate community, bridge cultures, transcend fear through love, and regenerate higher mind within our beloved people. Children, adults and elders are intimately welcome into this timeless soundscape and movement. Taste, hear and feel the stories of this Amer-Afrikan imagination: http://rootsgrowndeep.com/
