In 2004, Adam collaborated with a group of pan-African musicians on the CBC-produced African Guitar Summit , which led to the 2005 Juno Award for Best World Music Album of the Year. Later that year, African Guitar Summit performed at the Live 8 Concert at Park Place in Barrie. Adam is a composer and facile multi-instrumentalist, and has become a valuable contributor to cultural education through music and storytelling in schools, libraries and workshops. Retaining his roots in traditional music, Adam''s compositions embrace a wide variety of African rhythms, from soukous, highlife and reggae to samba, bossanova and rhumba. The effortless manner with which he controls the guitar so that it sings with him exemplifies the talent of this East African native. Adam Solomon is a current member of the Toronto Musician’s Association, OCFF, CARAS and SOCAN.
