Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions Songlines Five-star review
For 40 years now, the Kronos Quartet (which was founded by the violinist David Harrington) has been exploring the limits of art music from the western world and it’s possible comparison with traditions of all ethnic backgrounds. Here they tune up with a trio of virtuosos from Mali who descended from a large family of griots. The powerful singer Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté is the daughter of the well-respected Kassé Mady Diabaté. On the bass we have N’goni, Mamadou Kouyaté, the daughter of the master of this instrument - Bassekou Kouyaté. Finally, there’s Fodé Lassana Diabaté, who is one of the most sought after balafon players in the world. This work, paired with the chamber music group from San Francisco, started in 2013 and was driven by the Agha Khan Music Initiative, which brought together these two poles. Slowly but surely, the Kronos Quartet brought together bit by bit this collation so as to move towards an untouched musical space where each world seems to put the other first and work on establishing a new horizon. © BM/Qobuz
