03/08 | Ballake Sissoko & Vincent Segal – World Music Wednesday

Ballake Sissoko the Malian master of the traditional harp, or kora; Vincent Segal the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop; and the elegant.
After years of touring together Sissoko and Segal have created their own hybrid tradition, one that draws on the ancient well of West African troubadour songs, the rich heritage of Baroque music, and an elusive but somehow clearly modern sensibility. Musique de Nuit refines their approach: where Chamber Music included several guests, most of this album consists solely of duets – though your ears may tell you different.
