Are you curious about your roots? Check out these OkayAfrica videos to see how knowing their ancestry impacted members of The Roots and A Tribe Called Quest.

The Roots’ Questlove’s maternal lineage points to Sierra Leone, while Black Thought’s ancestry stems from the Mandinka Tribe, whose rich oral history was passed down by singers.

Q-Tip’s tribal ancestry links to Djola, a tribe who made a musical instrument similar to the banjo—which created Blues, which influenced music and lead to hip-hop—forever changing the modern music scene.

Showcase your own roots by adding a DNA Ancestry Signature to your DNA Portrait—it’s a scannable barcode “signature” that crosses over from physical to digital to trace your maternal lineage. The barcode is placed at the bottom right of your portrait in a color that compliments your DNA art.
