Justin Adams and Mauro Durante

Two master musicians come together in a powerful and intricate award-winning duo, bonded by a deep fascination with ancient trance rhythms and their common role in their otherwise radically different musical traditions.

Guitarist, vocalist, producer and composer Justin Adams’ extraordinary career has seen him move from post-punk to old blues, Arabic and African music, and collaborations with Jah Wobble, Tinariwen and Robert Plant.

Vocalist, violinist and percussionist Mauro Durante is best known as the leader of the stunning band Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino and his work with Ludovico Einaudi. He is a specialist in taranta and pizzica (the thrilling folk music of southern Italy).

The duo won Songlines magazine’s Best Fusion Artist award in 2022, and their debut album Still Moving combines the Magreb, Saharan desert and delta blues with Mediterranean melody, the taranta of Puglia and rocking soul.
