Adam Solomon was born in Mombasa, Kenya, and began performing at an early age. He established his career playing lead guitar and singing on recordings with some of Kenya's most popular musicians. He was a co-founder of Canada's great pan-African band, the Afronubians, with whom he toured western Canada in ‘93. After forming his own multicultural band, Tikisa, he released the albums Safari and Rocket Express II: African Renaissance Blues.  In 2004 he collaborated with a group of pan-African musicians, culminating in the release of the CBC-produced African Guitar Summit CD, which won Best World Music Album at the 2005 Junos. Tikisa delivers a fresh, eminently listenable sound...an intoxicating blend of Worldbeat and Afropop rhythms that will lift your soul and make your feet move.
