Ballaké Sissoko & Vincent Ségal

Night Music: Blending West African and Baroque Traditions

February 23, 2017, 8:00pm
Phelps-Stokes Auditorium

After years of touring together, Sissoko, the Malian master of the kora, or traditional harp, and Ségal, the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop, have created their own hybrid tradition, one that draws from the ancient well of West African troubadour songs, the rich heritage of Baroque music, and an elusive but modern sensibility.
