Axis of Love: Ballake Sissoko & Vincent Segal
When Ballaké Sissoko & Vincent Segal released their first collaborative album, Chamber Music in 2011, they caught the music world by surprise. Everything about this duo was unexpected: the Malian master of the traditional harp, or kora; the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop; and the elegant, soulful music they made together. After years of touring together Sissoko and Segal have created their own 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.
Axis of Love is a three-part concert series presented by The Rhythm Foundation with major support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Tickets are $20 for individual concerts in advance, $50 for a three-concert series.
