Ballaké Sissoko is one of Mali's greatest exponents of the kora, the 21-stringed harp of the Manding people. Whilst his music is steeped in ancient West African traditions, this modest and soft-spoken man is also a staunch innovator and musical. He earned his reputation by performing solo, with Toumani Diabate, Taj Mahal, Ludovico Einaudi, and more recently, in an award-winning collaboration with French cellist Vincent Segal. For his latest project, At Peace, Sissoko gathers trusted, long-time musical companions on guitars and balafon; together, the four musicians produce music that is remarkable for its sophistication, conversation, and the art of weaving sound into a cascade of almost liquid lacework, at once tranquil and adventurous.

Babani Kone joins the tour!

We are thrilled to announce that Malian diva Babani Kone, one of the top female vocalists in Mali today, will be joining the tour with Ballaké Sissoko as a special guest!
