Adamu da Silva


A versatile performer, his sets range in feel from high-energy Semba, kwasa kwasa and afro-beat to more gentle jazz and African 'world' music. Adamu has shared stages with African giants Manu Dibango, Salif Keita, Ismael Lo, and has supported Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Tracy Chapmen on tour. Often performing solo, where he gets to exhibit his soulful, evocative voice, duo with sax or drum-percussion, trio and his full band, that one experiences Adamu's full musical scope and exuberance.

Adamu was born in "Sambizanga" area in Luanda, the capital city of Angola, on the 11th of May, Adamu took great interest in music at earlier age being inspired by his elder brother. At the age 6 he started to play the guitar. Coming from a country, rich in musical heritage; this is reflected in his original compositions; an Afro-Latin fusion of musical styles and languages. Adamu sings in Portuguese, French, English, Spanish, Kimbundo, Kicongo and other central African languages.
