You take a trio of the finest traditional griot musicians from Mali and put them in a studio with Western music's most revolutionary string quartet - and the resulting album is one of the most richly rewarding musical collaborations you are likely to encounter.
the Kronos Quartet and Trio Da Kali have created an album that is rich in texture, hauntingly melodic and strikingly inventive as violins, viola and cello combine with balafon, ngoni and the powerful female voice of Hawa 'Kassé Mady' Diabaté in transcendental style. David Harrington, who founded the Kronos Quartet in 1973, describes the album as "one of the most beautiful Kronos has done in forty years."
