07/04/2019 5PM | GUEST | DJ Sly


MUSICIAN. POET. HUMANITARIAN. Taj Weekes is a St. Lucia bred, singer/songwriter and musician with an unwavering, energetic humanitarian spirit that extends beyond his socially conscious lyrics into activism. He is a UNICEF Champion for Children and founder of his children’s charity, They Often Cry Outreach (TOCO). Aside from brains, heart, and a great smile, Weekes is a poetic singer-songwriter who fronts a dynamic reggae band named Adowa, a disciplined team of talented musicians that delivers a blend of rock n’ roll, reggae one drop rhythms and traditional Caribbean sounds. The band (named after the battle of Adowa in 1896) superbly supports Weekes’ haunting falsetto, giving audiences a mesmerizing and fantastic show.


Taj Weekes & Adowa have released six critically acclaimed albums of musically adventurous reggae – To All My Relations (2018), Love, Herb & Reggae(2016), Pariah in Transit (2014), A Waterlogged Soul Kitchen (2010), DEIDEM (2008), Hope & Doubt (2005) – all of which showcase Taj’s unblinking and sophisticated view of the world.
