Storyline

SATAN & ADAM chronicles the unlikely pairing of legendary one-man-band Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee and harmonica master Adam Gussow. Shot over 20 years, the film showcases one of the greatest blues duos you probably never got a chance to see. Magee and Gussow came together on the streets of Harlem in the 1980s, a time when race relations in New York City were at an all-time low. From completely different worlds, these two musicians forged a lifelong relationship that showcases the unifying power of music.

Slice of music history
26 July 2018 | by NagfilmsSee all my reviews

'Satan and Adam', a very entertaining and informative documentary filmed over 20 years chronicling the personal and professional lives of Mr. Satan (aka Sterling McGee) and Adam Gussnow was featured at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. Mr. Satan was a gifted blues guitarist who rose to fame playing on the streets of Harlem and who graciously let Adam Gussnow, a white blues harmonica player, join him in playing blues on the street. This unlikely pair, one black one white, making beautiful music together in a racially charged 1980's NYC rose to brief national and world fame before Mr. Satan disappeared from the music scene. This leads to the most powerful parts of the documentary which captures the rise and fall of two men-an unlikely but genuine friendship-and how the power of music (and some caring souls) can pull someone out of the depths of depression.
