PLEASE NOTE: (February 24, 2017) Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal’s flights have been seriously delayed due to mechanical problems. They will not make it to Burlington tonight in time for this evening’s performance.

It’s going to be a rainy, drizzly, muddy day, so we hope you will be able to spend a few hours with us in the afternoon to enjoy this spectacular music and these two extraordinary musicians. They really want to play for us.

French cellist Vincent Segal and Malian kora master Ballaké Sissoko surprised the music world in 2009 with their uniquely elegant Chamber Music, an album that proposed a rich hybrid of traditions and earned the duo spots on best-of lists across Europe and North America. Segal and Sissoko have since continued refining their musical reveries, drawing on West African troubadour songs and the rich heritage of Baroque music to develop an acute and thoroughly modern sensibility. Their most recent record, Musique de Nuit (Night Music), captures the duo listening closely to one another, responding with seemingly psychic connections to each note. Their hauntingly beautiful harmony takes listeners on an extraordinary musical voyage in the pin-drop acoustics of the UVM Recital Hall.
Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity, and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
Programming is supported by endowments initiated through challenge grants from the Ford, Argosy, and Doris Duke Charitable Foundations and matched by generous support from the community.
