Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Segal will return to North American stages in 2017, with their first tour on this side of the Atlantic since 2011. Malian kora master Ballaké Sissoko and French cellist Vincent Segal charmed critics and fans alike with their splendid debut Chamber Music, released in North America in 2011.
The duo followed this success up with 2015’s Musique du Nuit that intensified the kora with cello hybrid sound.
Ballaké and Vincent will begin the first part of their 2017 North American tour with stops in eleven cities in February and March, including Quebec, Montreal, New York City, Chicago, Miami, and more.
The duo will return for a second leg of touring in autumn 2017, with more dates to be announced.
