Beauty during pandemic: Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Segal at the Vienne Jazz festival

Embark on a poetic journey around the world with the kora player Ballaké Sissoko and the cellist Vincent Segal at the Jazz festival in Vienna.

It was in 2009 that the two virtuosos joined forces for the first time on the album “Chamber Music”. Six years later, their new project “Night music”, conceived in Bamako and inspired by Mandingo, Baroque, Brazilian, jazz and Gypsy music, is a real instrumental conversation. 
Moment of sweetness with Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Segal on the stage of the Théâtre Antique!
