In 1986, two musicians from the opposite ends of life met on the streets of Harlem. Against the backdrop of racial violence 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, the RYOT film “Satan & Adam” showcases a miraculous journey of friendship, heartbreak and the transformative power of music at a time when America finds itself once again divided.
