With their music griot Ablaye Cissoko and accordionist Cyrille Brotto create a waltz between two heritages. Their fusion of West African Mandingo culture and traditional music from the United States is a poetic and inspired conversation between kora and accordion: the kora carries the melody while the accordion improvises in the background and plays with silences. Join Cissoko and Brotto on an intimate musical journey imbued with deep respect for the suspended moments of connection in life.
