Rod Deville & Tota Blues

Rod and Tota, one a guitar man and country singer, the other a blues harp player. One lives in Norway and the other in Barcelona. What do they play? Music! Without labels! Musically the two speak the same language but with different accents and it promises to be unique dialogue between two old friends that know each other some 20 years and even if they have tread the stage together before; never in this format. A different proposal that will not leave indifferent any lover of Blues, Country or music in general.
