Children of Adam Band is an ensemble from Philadelphia, USA, an exciting new band of seasoned professionals. The most part of the band members are mature musicians who have lived through the decades of music styles and productions and somewhat familiar with the most part of them. They produce a new world hybrid sound developed by Baba Kenya, that is a multilingual fusion of Jazz, R&B, Latin, Funk, African, Middle Eastern with a splash of American Soul and Spoken Word. Musicians define their genre as “PMB” that means Positive Message Bearing Music.
The songs contain positive universal themes including respect for Mothers (‘Mama’), anti-bullying, the universal commonality of humanity (‘Come Together’) and the need for tolerance (‘Skin I’m In’). No profanity, gangsta rap, misogyny, drugs, violence, or verbal abuse exist in the music of the band. Lyrics are multi-lingual with English, Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic, Wolof, Fulani, and other languages. Mesmerizing performances incorporate video imagery and a spectacular female “whirling dervish dancer.” Audiences can’t remain seated!
The concerts of The Children of Adam Band also feature positive reaffirming videos where possible. They speak to the world with a goal to bring light and build human bridges of understanding.
