Savannah Music Festival: Ballake Sissoko & Vincent Segal

Airs Thursday, September 13 at 8:00 p.m.  A 2011 Savannah Music Festival production entitled "African Interplay" featured new music from Bob Sadin performed by the Lionel Loueke Ensemble, and began with an enchanting set by kora player Ballake Sissoko and cellist Vincent Segal. 
When people hear the term "chamber music", more often than not they think of a form of Classical music from the European tradition written for a small number of instruments. 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.
