Vincent Ségal and Ballake Sissoko

When Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Ségal released their first collaborative album, Chamber Music, in 2011 they caught the music world by storm. Everything about this duo was unexpected: the Malian master of the kora; the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop; and the elegant, soulful music they made together. Since then, Sissoko and Ségal have created their own cross-cultural 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.
