Justin Adams recently spoke with Philippa Kennedy and her article appears in the National (UAE). Adams talks about his involvement with WOMAD and his affinity for desert music. He also talked about teaming up with Robert Plant:
The call from Robert Plant, asking Adams to work with him, came out of the blue. “I was completely star-struck at first. That was a pretty surprising phone call to get. He was looking for a guitarist and somebody recommended me. Obviously, when you are playing for Robert Plant for the first time in a rehearsal it’s a bit scary because he has been part of your life.
“What is great,” Adams adds, “is that he is a very creative person and likes to have a good time and is not pressured nor precious about music. He understands that it’s about a group of people who get on well getting into a room and just playing and having fun and responding to each other.”
Both men gained musically from the relationship, Adams believes: “We turned each other on to really good music. For instance I took him to the Sahara desert to play at the Festival of the Desert and he took me to the Mississippi delta.”
Adams also hinted at a show with Robert Plant later in the year:
“This year I may be doing a concert in October with Robert Plant, but you never know till the last minute with Robert,” he says.

Robin Denselow, writing for guardian.co.uk, offered an interview with Justin Adams. Adams spoke about his music and collaborations, including his work with Robert Plant. Denselow writes:
And then, of course, there’s his “very different” work with Robert Plant. Adams says he gets on well with the Zeppelin star, because he’s got over all the initial shyness one might have of working with a legend: “Plus, we’ve got passions in common – the blues, and Moroccan music and Egyptian classical music. So we have Little Richard and Bukka White, and then berber and gnawa music as reference points.” When they last performed together the line-up consisted of “two Algerian bendir players, Juldeh on his fiddle, drums, bass, me on guitar, and Robert – and we played a spooked-out version of Led Zep’s Black Dog that was almost unrecognisable. I hope we record that stuff”.

The album features Justin Adams, who worked with Robert Plant, Juldeh Camara and Tinariwen; Lu Edmonds, who has worked with Billy Bragg, the Mekons and Public Image Ltd; and Ben Mandelson who has worked with Billy Bragg and various African Bands.
Adams describes the group as a “meeting of the ancient guild of post-punk, Anglo, globetrotting string players reveling in idiosyncrasy”.
Visit World Village to read more and hear some samples from the album.

Stephen Humphries, writing for PopMatters.com, recently interviewed Justin Adams, Juldeh Camara about their newest album. Adams and Camara also touch on working with Robert Plant for the Womad Abu Dhabi appearance. Humphries writes:
The latter concert was preceded by a week of rehearsals with Robert Plant, who was eager to raise a little Middle Eastern sand. “He just calls and says, ‘Do you fancy doing something?’” says Adams. “We get on well. He and I are the only two people I know obsessed by delta and Moroccan music.”
The duo’s set list was augmented by mighty rearrangements of a few Plant solo career songs, Led Zeppelin classics, and cover versions of Dylan’s “Corrina Corrina” and Leadbelly’s “In the Pines”.
“He is a griot,” Camara effuses. “He is very open, sweet. The way he acts and the way he gives hug and the respect he gives to you.”
