SATAN AND ADAM follows two musicians from the opposite ends of life who met on the streets of Harlem in 1986. Against the backdrop of racial discord in the city, Adam Gussow, a young white Jewish harmonica player, and Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee, an older black Mississippi bluesman, joined forces to blaze a new musical trail. Bi-racial blues. Po-mo blues. Whatever you want to call it, it changed their lives forever and contested longstanding notions of cultural appropriation. Shot over 30 years, Satan & Adam showcases a miraculous journey of friendship, heartbreak and the transformative power of music.
