For the past 40 years, a shared love for rhythms and musics of the world has taken fellow Chicagoans Drake and Rudolph around the globe, performing together with Fred Anderson, Don Cherry, Yusef Lateef, Pharaoh Sanders, and Mandingo Griot Society, among others. Their shared Chicago roots, creative outlook, long-time global music research, and performing experience have allowed them to forge a uniquely shared musical understanding. As Drake recently observed, “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.” http://artlitlab.org/events/karuna-hamid-drake-and-adam-rudolph.
