After joining Rucyl in 1999 for two initial performances, the two have continued to work together, with a debut album set for release this month. Drawing inspiration from the revolutionary avant-garde jazz musician Sun-Ra, the duo have crafted an improvisational style that plays straight into their intuitive musical abilities.
