BIO

Celebrating the Musical Diversity of Humanity!

-Children of Adam Band

CHILDREN OF ADAM BAND, an audience favorite, is a riveting 14 member musical ensemble that performs all original “PMB” Positive Message Bearing Music. Their music is a uniquely original sound birthed within a lane they have carved. The sound is a new world music hybrid, an ever-evolving fusion of RnB, Jazz, Funk, African, Latin, and Middle Eastern with a splash of American Soul! While you will discover the Children of Adam Band under the genres of World and Jazz on global music platforms, COA has carved its own sub-genre of PMB. The songs contain positive universal themes including respect for Mothers, anti-bullying, the universal commonality of humanity and the need for tolerance. Lyrics are both in English and various African dialects. Mesmerizing performances incorporate video imagery and a spectacular female “whirling dervish dancer.” Audiences can’t remain seated!

With a goal to bring light to the world and build human bridges of understanding…

Saturday, October 5, 2019 Children of Adam Band debuted worldwide its first project, “PMB, Positive Message Bearing Music, Vol 1: Bilal.” Bilal is eight tracks of original positive message bearing music (PMB) written by Baba Kenya and produced by Images of the Motherland. 

Album Cover: PMB Positive Message Bearing Music Vol. 1, Bilal. This is the debut release of the Children of Adam Band. Released worldwide Saturday, October 5, 2019
