Taj Weekes is a dreadlocked Rastafarian singer-songwriter who fronts a dynamic reggae band named Adowa. Raised in the Caribbean island of St. Lucia but shaped by intercontinental life experience, he is also an unwavering, energetic humanitarian, who founded his children’s charity, TOCO (They Often Cry Outreach). His efforts earned him the title UNICEF Champion for Children for St. Lucia where he implements and executes various programs designed to enrich the lives of Caribbean children.
So what makes Taj Weekes special can be summarized in three words: MUSICIAN, POET, HUMANITARIAN. What makes him astonishing is the easy and unforced harmony among all these facets of his existence.
