Ancestral Recall continues Adjuah's mission to unify people via their musical and cultural voices by tearing down the sonic and social constructs that separate them. As a newly ascended Chieftain in the Black masking culture of New Orleans, he has been deeply committed to turning identity politics, as it is used in music, on its ear. Ancestral Recall seeks to excavate and update hidden histories in sound by displaying a sonic tapestry that illuminates the har-melodic movements found within rhythm. Adjuah explains:

"In its inception, Ancestral Recall was built as a map to decolonize sound; to challenge previously held misconceptions about some cultures of music; to codify a new folkloric tradition and begin the work of creating a national set of rhythms; rhythms rooted in the synergy between West African, First Nation, African Diaspora/Caribbean rhythms and their marriage to rhythmic templates found in trap music, alt-rock, and other modern forms. It is time we created a sound that dispels singular narratives of entire peoples and looks to finally represent the wealth of narratives found throughout the American experience. An experience that shows all forms of expression in sound are valid, as all people are."

In 2015, Adjuah released Stretch Music - the inaugural recording of Adjuah's vision of genre blindness in sound. The trailblazing document centered around acculturating as many musical forms, vernaculars, and cultures as possible into one fresh and resonate creative improvised concept. The recording garnered Adjuah a Downbeat Critics Poll "Rising Star Composer" win in addition to many "Rising Star Trumpet" wins from the publication. Stretch Music was accompanied by a groundbreaking app by the same name, for which Adjuah won JAZZFM's 2015 Innovation of the Year honor.

The Centennial Trilogy: Adjuah's three-album series commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first jazz recordings was released in 2017. The recordings are a sobering re-evaluation of the world's social and political realities and speaks to a litany of issues that continue to plague the collective human experience. The final album of the trilogy, The Emancipation Procrastination, was nominated for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album at the 61st GRAMMY Awards. The recording marks Adjuah's second nomination.

Christian was also recently featured on Boogie's "Whose Fault" from the album Everything For Sale, which reached #1 on the iTunes hip hop charts upon release earlier this year.

Upcoming US tour dates for Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah include April 6th at Union Station in LA, April 12th at Harlem Stage in NYC, and June 29th at City Winery in Chicago.
