Descendants of a Quest is a young, four piece band from London, who strive to push the boundaries of modern Hip-hop, Rn'b and Jazz through live instrumentation and inventive musicianship. Fusing soulful melodies, hard hitting guitar licks and penetrating vocals, DQ always engage the listener in a musical world of fantasy where good music and meaningful lyrics are paramount. The two front men Yao Adu (stage name Deep) and Renell Shaw (stage name R-Child), who are also the pianist and bassist respectively, are two poetic lyricists who combine intricate word play with catchy hooks to convey intimate thoughts and feelings to the world. Michael Antoniou is an innovative guitarist who mixes blues, rock and Mediterranean influences to create an incomparable style that cannot be described, only experienced. Samson Jatto is a drummer hailing from East London whose drum rhythms and breaks are absolutely timeless. A methodical drummer who makes the art look and sound effortless.
