Language Advisory: This is a live concert recording, and may not contain language suitable for all audiences.

A genre-hating musician with roots everywhere from Toronto to Trinidad, k-os lets his music sprawl across the disparate worlds of hip-hop, reggae, electronic music, indie rock, soul and so on. As such, it's tough to place him within any given scene — which is no doubt what he had in mind — but k-os' socially conscious songwriting and charisma have helped him win a crop of loyal fans anyway. His newest album is 2009's Yes!

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, k-os performs here as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
