Adam Solomon--"The Professor" as he is known in musical circles--is highly respected as a lead guitarist, composer and singer. He creates a unique sound that combines traditional African blues and jazz, spiced with East African rhythms. He sings in English, Swahili, and Mijikenda (the Nine Tribes from Mombasa on the Kenyan coast). Adam has been working on reviving the classic sounds of the legends of popular East African music as an homage, as well as incorporating the traditional acoustic rhythms of his people. He is active in the Toronto music community and tours both as a solo act and with a band across Canada and into the US. He has released a number of recordings and awarded a JUNO as a member of the African Guitar Summit and has since been nominated for three more Junos.
