Audiophile Audition encourages new musical explorations of varied genre. In that spirit, we welcome this unique cello/koro duo, performing in Portland this week as part of the PDX Jazz series of events. From PDX Jazz, the following introductory notes:
When Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Ségal released their first collaborative album, Chamber Music, they caught the music world by surprise. Everything about this duo and the elegantly soulful music they made together was unexpected: Sissoko being the Malian master of the traditional kora harp, and Ségal being the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop.
