About Chief Adjuah

Two-time Edison Award–winning and five-time Grammy Award®–nominated trumpeter, composer, and producer Chief Xian aTunde Adjuah (formerly known as Christian Scott) returns to the Kennedy Center for two unforgettable performances drawing from his prolific career. Adjuah is the progenitor of “stretch music,” a jazz-rooted, genre-blind musical form that attempts to “stretch” jazz’s rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic conventions to encompass multiple styles, languages, and cultures. This can be heard in works such as 2017’s The Centennial Trilogy, which integrates a century’s worth of musical styles born from the form back to their musical birthplaces in West Africa and New Orleans.

Adjuah’s 12 studio recordings, three live albums, and one greatest hits collection have garnered him critical acclaim, sold-out shows at the world’s best-known venues, and global recognition. His collaborators have included Prince, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, McCoy Tyner, Marcus Miller, Eddie Palmieri, Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), Talib Kweli, and poet and musician Saul Williams. Join us to experience live performances from this jazz innovator as he continues to stretch and surpass the boundaries of his music.
