Adamu is an Angolan singer/songwriter who has led a genuine wandering minstrel life, travelling and playing in Congo, Zaїre, Gabon, Cameroon and Namibia before settling in Cape Town.
The rich musical heritage of his native Angola and Congo reflect in his original compositions – an Afro-Latin fusion of musical styles and languages. Adamu sings in Portuguese, French, English, Spanish, Kicongo and other central African languages.
A versatile performer, his sets range in feel from high-energy kwasa-kwasa and Afro-beat to more gentle jazz and African ‘world’ music. Adamu has shared stages with Africa giants Manu Dibango and Salif Keita, and has supported Crosby, Stills and Nash on Tour.
