(Chris Corsano, Mick Flower – USA)
Much respected and lauded duo featuring on drums and percussion Chris Corsano with Mick Flower (Vibracathedral Orchestra) on shahi baaja (Japanese banjo). A two-piece that have an ultra-sensitive and special chemistry, producing a music that really is a journey into a ZONE. They have that power to elevate through rhythm and primal harmonics but are also able to harness delicate moments, eastern harmonics, a widescreen expansiveness and a thrilling sense of noise and melody.
