Album · 2009 · 10 Songs. On Chamber Music, the Malian Ballaké Sissoko and the French cellist Vincent Segal make lovely music that has the intimacy and refinement that the album’s title implies. The kora has an elegant, courtly quality steeped in tradition, as does the cello, so the pairing is a natural one. The opening title track gives the listener an idea of what follows: the musicians play a theme together and then take turns playing lead. Oscarine comes off like a slice of jazzy psych-folk, thanks in part to Segal’s pizzicato work.

When Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal released their first collaborative album, Chamber Music, they caught the music world by surprise. Everything about this duo was unexpected: the Malian master of the traditional harp, or kora; the French cellist with the unlikely background in trip-hop; and the elegant, soulful music they made together. The album appeared on numerous best-of lists in both Europe (in 2009) and North America (in 2011). Much of this is due to Segal’s inventive cello playing, which can provide a percussive groove in the lilting opener Niandou or imitate the njarka, the Malian fiddle, in Balazando. The seamless way that he moves from one sound to another gives the illusion of several musicians playing at once. Sissoko, meanwhile, weaves a filigreed texture of sound from his kora, which is both a melodic and a rhythmic instrument.
