Description
In this elegant and beauteous duet album, Ballaké Sissoko plays the traditional lute-harp from Mali and Vincent Segal, from the trip-hop band Bumcello, seconds him on cello. When plucked pizzicato, his instrument proves to be a wonderful foil for the kora. The occasional guest adds percussion, voice, or other strings to vary the texture on an album that's gone viral in Europe. The songs evoke our traditional idea of "chamber music" while also mixing in distinctively West African rhythms and folk-like melodies. "Houdesti" is a quartet for kora, cello, ngoni (ancestor of the banjo), and balafon, the West African wooden xylophone. Segal plucks the cello here so that it blends imperceptibly into the rhythm section and then gradually brings the instrument to the foreground by bowing it. In the album's only vocal, Awa Sangho sings "Regret–a Kader Barry," an art song–like tribute to the late singer of that name. "Mako Mady" and "Histoire de Molly" have bittersweet, elegiac melodies, while the gently rocking chord sequence that underpins "Halinkata Djoubé" echoes the spareness of Satie.
