Justin Adams & Mauro Durante
This new collaboration between Justin Adams and Mauro Durante stems from a concert led by Ludovico Einaudi, where the two first played together and recognised kindred spirits in the trance rhythms of Taranta.
The pair released their album Still Moving to acclaim in October 2021 and together they create a raw, stripped-back sound that moves and mesmerises.
Adams is a guitarist, producer and composer, and has been a chief collaborator with Robert Plant in his band, The Sensational Spaceshifters. Mauro Durante toured the world for years with Einaudi playing violin and frame drums. He is one of the leading players in the pizzica style of Southern Italy.
It is a trip in itself, musically, tonally, thematically. I saw them at Camden’s Green Note last month, showcasing this music to an attentive crowd in that tiny venue, and it was captivating. You’ll be captivated too.★★★★☆ The Arts Desk
