Earlier this month, two acclaimed musicians, Questlove and Maggie Rogers, joined new yorkers Kelefa Sanneh live on stage for a conversation that investigated an essential question for musicians and music lovers alike: How can music provide a spiritual experience, and how do we sustain that feeling in our lives? Questlove, co-founder of Roots and music director of “The Tonight Show,” was one of Rogers’ teachers while she was a student at New York University, and the two have stayed in touch. Rogers received a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, following the release of his debut album Heard It in a Past Life. At the event, he performed songs from his latest album ā€œSurrender.ā€
