Admiral-T (GUADELOUPE / FRANCE/ CANADA)

French dancehall singer Admiral T was born Christy Campbell on March 29, 1981, in Guadeloupe, French West Indies. A lifelong fan of the pioneering reggae of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, he also absorbed influences spanning from Caribbean zouk to salsa to traditional African music. At 16 he joined the DJ collective Karukéra Sound System, debuting on the 1997 LP Rapide and scoring a 2000 hit with “Gwadada.” In mid-2003, Admiral T exited the KSS to mount a solo career, channeling the spirit of his native Creole culture for his debut album, Mozaik Kreyol. Originally released on the West Indian label Don’s Music, the record proved a cult phenomenon and was reissued via the major label Universal in the autumn of 2004. After starring in Jean-Claude Flammand’s 2005 feature film Nèg Maron, Admiral T issued his sophomore effort, Toucher l’Horizon, a year later. He appeared again on film in 2009 in Flammand’s next feature Le Mur du Silence. His third album, Instinct Admiral, arrived in 2010, followed by Face B in 2012.

Naomi Wachira (KENYA/USA)

“Naomi’s music carries grace, authenticity, positivity and acoustic rhythms that blend Western and African melodies that is sure to touch your soul.” Living Ma’at Magazine

Damien Rich (TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO/USA)

Damien Richards’ D Rich specialty is “Soul Rock,” a unique mix of tenderness with a slight edge. It’s emotional and striking – imagine the lovechild of Seal and Lenny Kravitz. With passionate soul in every chord that he strums and every note he sings, his music takes listeners on a journey at once earthy then heaven bound. https://www.reverbnation.com/iamdrichmusic

Élage Diouf  (SENEGAL / CANADA)
Élage Diouf: A sensational Senegalese soul-rocker
Master percussionist, Senegalese born singer-songwriter and performer Elage Diouf settled in Canada in 1996, to pursue a musical career that is still growing today.
His music – a blend of pop, world, blues, folk and asiko – thrives at the artistic crossroad of artists like Carlinhos Brown, Peter Gabriel and Andres Cepeda. The musicality of the wolof language explains his singing mainly in his mother tongue.
“My music is for the whole world to enjoy. It touches the heart, whatever the language. With upbeat songs that combine many cultures’ influences, sounds that are warm, with good dancing rhythms, sounds that make you want to move and feel great. That is what I want for myself, my family, my planet.”
— Élage Diouf

2014.01.17: Naomi Wachira @ The Neptune Theatre, Seattle, WA

I am very excited to be part of this great movement. Please get your ticket and join me to AMC2017 SHOWCASE. I will be spinning along side many great acts. DJ Dakar is from the Pikine neighborhood of Dakar, Senegal, and now lives in Harlem, New York City. I started my music journey as an audio technician for radio and television in Dakar.

Now in New York, I am glad to add my experience to the diversity that exist here. As one of many Djs that AfroJam presents and work with, I am ready to make sure that your night is memorable.

Nkumu Katalay & The “Life Long Project” Band

Born in Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of Congo where he spent one half of his life before moving to New York City USA in 1996, music became Isaac’s path to navigate the world. With a family of traditional healers, and faith varying from Christianity to Islam, music is Isaac’s corner stone, which holds fragments of his identity together.
