Taj Weekes & Adowa are currently booking their world tour in support of their latest album, To All My Relations. The band has a strong touring history, having performed at major festivals, popular music venues, and community concert series around the world.

To All My Relations (TAMR) is the 6th album from Taj Weekes & Adowa. Recorded and produced by Steel Pulse musician/producer, Sidney Mills, TAMR is a culmination of the band’s collective experiences, travelling across the United States over the last two years in the thick of the current political climate. From Standing Rock to rural conservative America, the band experienced both sides of the socio-political coin. Vibe Up,” the first single from the album, is a call to arms to stand up for what’s right – “we’re no paper lions.”

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.
