Thievery Corporation feat. Racquel Jones – Letter to the Editor

Few musicians have made more of a musical mark on DC than Thievery Corporation, the downtempo electronic duo of Eric Hilton and Rob Garza. Their tenth and newest album The Temple of I & I, released just a few weeks ago, was recorded primarily in Jamaica and takes them back to the dub reggae roots that launched them into the stratosphere on their debut album Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi from more than 20 years ago. “Letter to the Editor”, the lead-off single from the album, features Raquel Jones, a former Miss Jamaica contestant and fierce spoken word artist in her native Kingston. They’re currently touring the world to promote the album, but they do stop in their home town for a unique performance with Mason Bates’ KC Jukebox series at the Kennedy Center on Monday May 15th.
