Justin Adams and Mauro Durante

Guitarist, producer, and composer Justin Adams has been a chief collaborator with Robert Plant in his band, the Sensational Spaceshifters - co-writing a series of four albums and touring the world. His production on landmark albums by Tinariwen and Rachid Taha highlight his feel for North African groove, while his award-winning project with Gambian maestro Juldeh Camara, JUJU, linked griot tradition with raw blues spirit. His recent solo album Ribbons was cited amongst the top 50 albums of the past decade by Songlines. Mauro Durante toured the world for many years with Ludovico Einaudi playing violin and frame drums. He is one of the leading players in the pizzica style of Southern Italy and leads Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino, who have played great festivals all over the world. Last year, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino were featured in their own concert at the BBC Proms, and won ‘Best Group’ in the Songlines Music Awards. This new collaboration stems from the Notte della Taranta concert in Puglia led by Ludovico Einaudi, where the two first played together. Over the past year, the duo got together to make Still Moving, an intense and intimate record that established what was essential to their common sound by reaching into traditions from both Italy and America. Together Justin Adams and Mauro Durante create a raw, stripped-back sound that moves and mesmerises.
