“The duo has formed a symbiotic camaraderie, a smooth as velvet give and take of ideas, by turns spirited and introspective. Both possess prodigious techniques, both possess expansive souls.”- All About Jazz.

Initially meeting in 1990, Joel Frahm and Adrean Farrugia have toured together since 2009 in ‘Turbopop’, a band led by drummer Ernesto Cervini, garnering a GRAMMY Award in 2018 for “Jazz Album of the Year: Group”. Frahm and Farrugia went on to collaborate on their duo album later that year titled “Blued Dharma”. Farrugia, a freelance performer and educator has worked among jazz’s greatest. His solo album ‘Ricochet’ was nominated for a Juno award in best contemporary jazz recording (2011), while Joel Frahm has been awarded his solo accomplishments as a 2019 GRAMMY award-winning artist. The two are now touring across North America.
