Taj Weekes and Adowa, July 22, 8:30 PM
Taj Weekes is a superb roots reggae artist from the small Caribbean island of St. Lucia who formed his group Adowa in New York City and has since released two critically acclaimed albums; Hope and Doubt and Deidem. Weekes sings assuredly and soulfully for the voiceless and the oppressed and has become a true cultural ambassador for the Caribbean. A poet and humanitarian steeped in Rastafari, Taj Weekes is a positive force whose nonprofit, They Often Cry Outreach (TOCO) has gained international attention for its work with disadvantaged children.
