This album is a splendid bouquet of strings (Djourou in bambara) composed by Ballaké Sissoko. The kora of this Malian master (Demba Kunda) welcomes and joins with the kora of the Gambian Sona Jobarteh, who also offers her silky voice on the title track. The other instruments that dance with the African harp are the virtuoso cello of his accomplice Vincent Segal, accompanied by Patrick Messina's clarinet, for an improvisation around Hector Berlioz's Jeu sur la symphonie fantastique. Prestigious vocal chords also join the party. The choice of guests is eclectic and tasteful. His compatriot Salif Keita sings like a nightingale on Guelen. Oxmo Puccino pays tribute to his Mandingo roots with his poetic flow on Frotter les mains. Camille brings her magical fever to Kora. Piers Faccini infuses his tender melancholy on Kadidja, which he performs brilliantly in Bambara. The set is completed by a second solo by Ballaké, Mandé Tabolo, situated between the duet with Camille and the other with Oxmo. It all concludes with an unexpected meeting with the Parisians of Feu! Chatterton (Un vêtement pour la lune). The luxurious cast underlines above all the inventiveness and boundless inspiration of Ballaké Sissoko, this immense musician. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

The Great History of Malian Music

Mandingo traditions or urban intersections, ancestral chants from the griots or dance bands on the day following the Independence, the family tree of Malian music possesses deep roots, leafy branches and a strong sap. Let’s take a look back at the fascinating history.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

The harmonious Accords Croisés

Concert organisers, record label, publishing house, festival organisers and managers of an artistic drop-in centre, Accords Croisés celebrate their 20th birthday and 15 years of their label. Founder Saïd Assadi tells the story of these two decades.
