Six years after the album Chamber Music, which earned them a Victoire de la musique, one of the highest awards in French music, cellist Vincent Segal and kora player Ballaké Sissoko combine their favourite instruments once again to birth Musique de nuit. This is a delicate, soothing fusion of two musicians operating at the absolute peak of their powers. The French and Malian natives met up in Bamako; reuniting there to make fantastic world music from these two (seemingly) contradictory instruments. Improvisation remains at the heart of the album, and the two musicians never seem to encroach upon each other’s separate roles. They take turns to provide the lead on rhythm and melody, along the way taking in a wide variety of styles such as mbalax and Brazilian music. Yet, whatever realm they venture into together, the results are always enticing.
