"Every bit a son of New Orleans, and in every sense a citizen of the world." —NPR

Two-time Edison Award–winning and Grammy-nominated Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah grew up immersed in ritual Mardi Gras Indian traditions, and distinguished himself as a jazz trumpeter by his early teens. The New Orleans native plays what he calls Stretch Music—a proud hybrid of styles and approaches, with a strong underlay of groove. Heralded by JazzTimes magazine as “jazz’s young style God,” Adjuah's latest releases feature enough acoustic drum kits, 808s, and samples mixed with distorted flute solos to make Gucci Mane or Metro Boomin jealous. Touring since he was in his teens (his uncle is prolific saxophone player Donald Harrison Jr.), he has toured with Thom Yorke and even spent time with Prince when the late legend was putting together a jazz supergroup. 2017’s acclaimed The Centennial Trilogy crossed New Orleans and the Caribbean with Alt Rock, Japanese Traditional Music, Afro beat, and beyond.
