      Adam Solomon was born in Mombassa, Kenya, and began performing at an
      early age, playing kivoti (flute) and Kayaamba (shaker) at village
      celebrations and festivals. He established his career playing lead
      guitar and singing on recordings and videos with Kenya's most
      popular bands and musicians, such as Joseph Kamaru, Professor M.B
      Naaman and the Nine Stars Orchestra, Super Wanyika Stars of Issa
      Juma, Lessa Lessan vocalist of Dr.Nico, Super Mazembe ya Mushosho,
      Kanda Bongo Man and Mombasa Roots band. Now living in Toronto,
      Canada, Adam formed his band Tikisa in 1995. Retaining his roots in
      traditional music, Adam's compositions are comprised of a wide
      variety of African
      rhythms, from traditional chela, highlife, soukous, reggae, and
      samba to bossa nova and traditional 6/8 beat chakacha. Adam sings in
      six languages: Swahili, English, Lingala, Duruma, Giriama, and
      Arabic. "The Professor," as
      he is known in musical circles, is highly respected as a lead
      guitarist and vocalist. In addition, he is experienced as a bass and
      rhythm guitar player and keyboard player. Adam Solomon & Tikisa have
      performed across Canada and the US in clubs and major festivals.
      Adam Solomon was a co-founder of Canada's great pan-African band,
      The AfroNubians, with whom he toured western Canada in 1993 and
      collaborated on two CD releases: Tour to Africa and The Great
      Africans. His touring credits also include workshops with African
      super stars Papa Wemba from Congo and Ismael Lo from Senegal. Adam
      Solomon has released two Cds "SAFARI" Afro-Pop music, best release
      at Toronto African Music Awards & best band of the year. His latest
      solo release "African Renaissance Blues Rocket Express II" is a best
      selling Album. As well as his career as a band leader, Adam is also
      establishing a reputation in music education and as a valuable
      contributor to programs in African Heritage education.
