Simply beautiful: Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Segal

performing Thursday, February 28, 8pm
at FIAF (Florence Gould Hall)
Vincent Segal and Balleké Sissoko
“...beautiful, nurturing, sublime....music that straddles the boundaries between classical and folk, Africa and Europe” -- SoundRoots
Ballaké Sissoko, a Malian griot who plays the 21-stringed kora harp-lute, and Vincent Segal, a classically trained French cellist, team up to present a memorable evening of world chamber music for the 21st century. Sissoko has worked with Taj Mahal, Toumani Diabaté, and Italian minimalist Ludovico Einaudi; Segal’s résumé ranges from the Opéra de Lyon to Sting and Elvis Costello. The two share a powerful link to tradition, and a longing to push tradition to its limits.
Co-presented with the World Music Institute
