Adam Sikora, Matthias Itzenplitz and Mauro Pandolfino have taken up in the foot steps of country blues harmonica legend Sonny Terry. With the Juke Joint Smokers this Berlin based trio bring their passion for traditional playing to the stage. Polish harmonica player Adam Sikora began studying Sonny Terry’s specialized harmonica technique early on, but despite the prevailing modern techniques, he has adapted Terry’s characteristic sound, and with it, he has created his own songs and original playing style. The result is a homage to the great Sonny Terry and something very unique that belongs to Adam Sikora.
