Artist Info

Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara

Powered by Audioscrobbler™In 2007 British guitarist and producer Justin Adams teamed up with Juldeh Camara, a Gambian griot and virtuoso on the one-stringed ritti fiddle, to record “Soul Science”, an album that deservedly won awards for its fusion of rock energy and traditional African influences. In 2009 it was followed by “Tell No Lies”. Their third album, "The Trance Sessions", was released in February 2010.

Justin Adams has been at the cutting edge of world music alchemy since the 1990's with Jah Wobble, Robert Plant, Natacha Atlas, The Festival of the Desert and Tinariwen. Taking influences from African, Arabic and Irish traditions as well as rock and roll and the Blues, his distinctive, driving guitar style is the missing link between Bo Diddley and Munir Bashir. With Tell No Lies, Adams delves deeper into the African origins of black American music, following the roots of New Orleans and Mississippi soul right back to the Songhai, Fulani and Toureg peoples of West Africa.

Juldeh Camara is an African Master Musician, taught to play by his blind father, who himself was taught directly by the djinn. Playing the ritti, a one-stringed fiddle and West African ancestor of the violin, he participated as a griot in traditional Fula society. Juldeh has the drive and effortless flow of a great Bluesman. While his instrument brings to mind Delta players like Big Joe Williams, as well as Ali Farka Touré, there is a lilt in his playing that hints at the ancient links between North Africa and the Celtic World.
