Appeals to Audiences Worldwide!

Taj Weekes and his band, Adowa, are currently booking their 2016 - 2017 World Tour in support of their 5th album, Love Herb & Reggae.

Taj Weekes is a creative, poetic singer-songwriter who fronts a dynamic reggae band named Adowa. He is also a humanitarian whose dedication extends beyond his song lyrics into his social activism, an activism that has culminated in his official role with the United Nations as "UNICEF Champion for Children" and his children's charity, They Often Cry Outreach (TOCO).

Workshops & Lectures

Taj Weekes is available to present workshops and lectures on a variety of topics that encompasses music and social responsibility. He relates his personal experience, inspirations and aspirations as he discusses the theme of how music plays a role in global acceptance, tolerance and social responsibility. As a musician and songwriter, he delves into the subjects that compel him to pick up his pen and continue in the tradition of storyteller/town crier that is at the root of reggae music. Weekes shares his philosophy on what individual responsibility means in regards to caring for our earth and caring for each other as well as how that translates into everyday actions for all of us. Weekes’ life’s work and artistic expression is an example of how we can all make a difference in our communities and in the world by controlling our own consumption and sharing our surplus of time, energy, and resources, no matter how great or small.
