Taj Weekes is an enigma. Blessed with an easy smile and laid back Caribbean charm, he is a man driven to inspire conscious thought and provoke discussion through his poignant poetry and lyrics. Weekes says, �I write from the heart and I speak about issues that move me. I believe that�s what really matters.� With his band Adowa, Weekes weaves a rare social consciousness with an unforgettable groove.

Taj Weekes and Adowa released their much-anticipated third CD, A Waterlogged Soul Kitchen, in October 2010. The group�s first two full-length albums are Hope and Doubt and Deidem, which won �Best Reggae Album� at the Just Plain Folks Music Awards and was shortlisted for a Grammy Award.

Always striving to bring awareness to the issues he is passionate about, Weekes founded his charity, They Often Cry Outreach (TOCO), to improve the lives of underprivileged children in the Caribbean through sport, enrichment, educational and wellness programs.
