Abraham Jam–composed of Billy Jonas, David LaMotte and Dawud Wharnsby–features three “brothers” from the three Abrahamic faiths. Jonas, LaMotte and Wharnsby have performed extensively over the last few decades in their individual careers. They came together and recently announced a special one-night concert that will take place on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at The Cary Arts Center.
The trio doesn’t just take turns sharing songs -- they create music together, contributing vocal harmonies, percussion, and instrumentation to each other’s songs.
“For thousands of years, in villages spread out around the world, song was a way for common people to share and pass along their stories,” explains Dawud Wharnsby. “Today, when we’re so interconnected through travel and technology, it is important that we also communicate. We need to sing our world’s ongoing story together.”
