The collaboration between African kora player Ablaye Cissoko and trumpeter Volker Goetze is a thing of real late-night beauty. It lives on the tipping point between West African music and ethereal, atmospheric European jazz. In many ways, the disc belongs to Cissoko, whose playing and singing on both traditional and original material powers the whole things, gently lulling everything along, with Goetze's contributions more minor, often punctuating and filling in the material. But it somehow manages to become more than the sum of its parts, a conjoining of talents that brings real magic.
Ablaye Cissoko is a Senegalese musician, singer and composer, who plays the kora. His show, called "Le Griot Rouge" (named after his second album), is about the legend of the man who has created the kora. During his performances, Ablaye Cissoko transmits with smoothness, grace and intelligence the values of a generous tradition and sings with sincerity about peace and the respect of the other.
Well, now that the concept of the album cover has been relegated to mere packets of metadata-at best experienced via the tiniest screen-mounted, portable music devices-it appears rather sad that fans will likely miss out on Ablaye Cissoko and Volker Goetze's cover of Sira. Somewhat banal in its aesthetic, it does however cleverly encapsulate the record's adventurous proposition: two musicians of clearly different backgrounds standing shoulder to shoulder in a dry, Senegalese alley.
