I must admit that sometimes I take for granted the fact that I live in one of the most wonderful cities in the world for live music. New York City is blessed with more venues for music performances than anywhere I have ever visited. There is a space for every different style of music you could ask for. The talent pool is huge though so it is relatively rare when you discover an artist that really grabs your full attention when they take the stage. We found one in Adam Ahuja.
The NYC-based musician focuses on keyboard but also plays guitar, drums, and sings. His own unique style seems to draw on the best elements from a wide array of genres including jazz, rock, funk, electronica, and hip-hop. The keyboard skills of Adam Ahuja really stand out. One of my favorite instrument makers Nord even supports him with an artist endorsement. This has led to Adam performing with some true legends of music like Robert Randolph, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, and Questlove of The Roots.
A great introduction to the talents of Adam Ahuja can be experienced in this video mashup featuring performances at The Blue Note NYC, Shapeshifter Lab, Spike Hill and Sullivan Hall.
