"...features engaging melodies, inspired fiddle accents, memorable songs and builds itself into an album that could well ensure some enduring recognition."
“If folk duos are your thing, you’ll love Madam Tsunami. Both artists are really talented, blending together a unique sound…The intricate chord changes, [in single Hold Me Close] especially, makes it a comforting and sweet song. As love songs go, this one is pretty complex and that makes it a lot of fun to listen to over and over.”

Madam Tsunami are Adam and Coralie Usmani, a folk pop duo originally from New Zealand and now settled in Aberdeen, Scotland.
They released 'Long Way from Home', their second full length album in March of 2017 to mark their move to Scotland from Auckland. Touching on themes of nostalgia, growing older and a yearning for home, this fine collection of songs is flavoured with the musical language of Scotland and delivered with a decidedly Kiwi accent!
Adam and Coralie met when she was performing classically learnt bluegrass tunes at the Auckland Bluegrass Club. Together they went on an adventure of musical projects, including fronting an 8 piece dance/house/jazz band, independently producing a televised rock band competition and masquerading as the local Irish band every year on St Patrick's Day.
Coralie has performed with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and toured with folk pop band Avalanche City amongst others. She is a music educator, currently working with Sistema Scotland teaching music to children in Torry, Aberdeen.
Adam was a semi-finalist in the 2017 International Songwriting contest.
Madam Tsunami were highly recommended at the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections (2016), and have released one other full length album, Man in the Middle (2014)
now booking for 2017 & 2018
