Chief Xian aTunde Adjuah (FKA Christian Scott) (USA)

Chief Xian aTunde Adjuah (formerly Christian Scott) is six-time Grammy-Nominated sonic architect, trumpeter, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, designer of innovative technologies and musical instruments (Adjuah Trumpet, Siren, Sirenette, and Chief Adjuah Bow) and returns to London for a UK-exclusive show.

Crowned Chieftain of the Xodokan Nation of the maroon tribes of New Orleans, Adjuah has released thirteen critically acclaimed studio recordings, four live albums, and one greatest hits collection. He returns with a new vision of blues and rock ‘n’ roll centred around vocal storytelling, song, and Xian’s innovative new instrument “Chief Adjuah’s Bow” (an electric double-sided N’goni/Kora/Harp created by Adjuah).

New single ‘Bark out Thunder Roar out Lightning’ bridges past and future by marrying the folkloric styles, ceremonial and ritual practice of the Maroon and Black chiefdoms and culture of New Orleans with his own innovation; Stretch Music. The result, a spellbinding exhibition of Afro-New Orleanian and West African narratives where music, dance and cultures collide in a riveting new approach that fills in the often veiled histories and roots of blues and rock ‘n’ roll.
