Harlem’s Sterling “Mr. Satan” Magee And Adam Gussow Talk Film At Build

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.
