Ten fingers for twenty-one strings, and magic takes place, surely, calmly. Ballaké Sissoko enlaces us in his suave and crystalline sonority and his kora, magnified by his talent as a melodist and an improviser. Open to all adventures and encounters Ballaké is an over-talented instrumentalist who, drawing on tradition for inspiration, has forged his own personal style. An inspired improviser and a subtle melodist, he is a marvellous accompanist and an excellent composer. Emotion, elegance, freshness and inventiveness make up some of the world’s best music.
You will have the opportunity to discover the Kora, an instrument from the Mandinka culture, within a special demonstration session following the concert.
