Karuna: Hamid Drake & Adam Rudolph Duo (USA)

Hamid Drake & Adam Rudolph

Hamid Drake and Adam Rudolph met as 14-year-olds in a downtown Chicago drum shop. For the past 40 years, their shared love for rhythms and musics of the world have see them travel globally to perform together with Fred Anderson, Don Cherry, Yusef Lateef, Pharaoh Sanders, Hassan Hakmoun, Hu: Vibrational, Mandingo Griot Society, and Adam Rudolph’s Moving Pictures. As Drake reflected upon their mutual influence, “I have been developing a hand drum concept on the drum set while Adam says he is developing a drum set concept on his hand drums. We understand one another.” Karuna delves deeply into the world of rhythm by two master percussionists in total sympathy with each other.
