This summer, Motown is the capital of American music.
From the Latin roots fo rhythm, to the rousing gospel and spirituals that moved our souls, from the jubilance of jazz, to the mega hits of Detroit:
Motown is profoundly more than hit songs we love.
Motown is America at its best.
Motown is what the world needs now.
Motown is a way to look at the world inclusively — with imagination, high hopes, and wild energy.
This is Motown presented in a timeless context paired with the breakthrough sounds of the ages. This is the intertwined story of how music changed America.
