During the Spring of 2011, we premiered a special production featuring guitarist Lionel Loueke in a seven-piece ensemble under the direction of Robert Sadin. Working together, Sadin and Loueke crafted an extraordinary hour-long set built around original compositions and an array of stunning instrumentalists: Sadin conducted cellist Vincent Segal, violinist Mark Feldman, multi-reed and wind player Charles Pillow, along with Walter Blanding on bass clarinet, percussionists Cyro Baptista and Thioko Diagne, while Loueke sang and played guitar.

In the past 100 years, however, chamber music has grown to include any art music that is performed by a small number of musicians with one player to a part. Tune in to hear part one of one of the 2011 Savannah Music Festival's most distinctive original productions: African Interplay. Malian kora master Ballake Sissoko and French cellist Vincent Segal create an original and intimate sound that comes from both African and European musical traditions.
