The collaboration of Chris Michalek and Christopher Strone is a completely original voice in contemorary acoustic jazz. Chris Michalek bring technical virtuosity and a distinctive style to the humble diatonic harmonica. He is one of a handful of players that has truly mastered the subtleties of the harmonica. He blends Indian, Arabic, Gypsy and Jazz inlfuences into a unique and dynamic energy.

Christopher Strone is a supremely versitile bass player and multi-instrumentalist who dazzles in every context - renaissance to ragas, Bach to fusion and superfunk. When they combine their talents, the result is art at once dynamic, melodic and flowing.

This extradinary demiurgic power uses rhythms and pitch sequences from foreign cultures to create an environment that is dually mesmerizing and inviting.
