African Blues with “The Professor” Adam Solomon
August 12, 2017
This Juno award winner is a master guitarist and composer. Adam Solomon sings in English, Swahili, and Mijikenda (the Nine Tribes from Mombasa on the Kenyan coast). “The Professor”, as he is known in musical circles, is highly respected as a lead guitarist and vocalist. He creates a unique sound that combines traditional acoustic African blues and jazz, spiced with traditional coastal East African rhythms. Adam's guitar method mirrors the sound of the ancient goatskin stringed instruments of the Mijikenda such as the Bunguu.
