JUSTIN ADAMS & MAURO DURANTE

JUSTIN ADAMS & MAURO DURANTE (GREAT BRITAIN/ITALY)

AN EXCELLENT GUITARIST OF ROBERT PLANT WITH AN EXPLOSIVE FIDDLER FROM SALENTO

THEY PROBABLY KNOW WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO PLAY, BUT YOU CANNOT BE SURE HOW.

They have never played just from notes, which is good for us because then the performance is full of surprise and those moments when improvisation creates a miracle. A guitarist, respected producer and renaissance artist who dedicated his heart to blues, and a fiddler, singer and frame drums player Mauro inherited the band Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino after his father. As we already know from Folk Holidays, the band plays an explosive and ecstatic pizzica from Italian Salento.When a famous composer Ludovic Einaudi encouraged them to perform together, they gave each other the most beautiful gift. After the years of playing in the bands, they tried to play together, to communicate through their music of totally different backgrounds. Finally, based on blues and pizzica appeared the music with trance rhythms, which heals the souls.
