Delicate soundscapes can often be the most profound, as demonstrated by the intertwining of kora and cello by Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal. The melody of the kora, a West African instrument with its 21 strings, dances around richly dark tones of the cello and when Sissoko (kora) and Segal (cello) employ those particular instruments, the imagination plays with more vivid colors. Your chance to experience this up close is through Alverno Presents this weekend, as AP welcomes the duo to Milwaukee for a performance this Saturday, March 9th. Get a glimpse of what’s in store, through the footage of LaBlogotheque, below.
