Mali’s great kora player Ballaké Sissoko and eclectic French cellist Vincent Ségal blend the sounds of bowed and plucked strings to mellifluous, virtuosic effect. Together, they craft a modern sensibility where West African and European origins are relevant but secondary to connection and presence in the moment.
“The interplay between this African harp and the cello was transcendent.”—Bob Boilen (Host, NPR, All Songs Considered)
