The great Malian artist Ballaké Sissoko returns to China

The great Malian artist Ballaké Sissoko returns to China

Nominated for a Best International Album award at the 2009 Victoires du Jazz, and again for Best World Music Album at the 2016 Victoires de la Musique, Ballaké Sissoko will once again perform for the Chinese public in March 2017, with a tour in the Poly network in Zhengzhou, Chongqing, Changsha, Taiyuan, Suzhou, Shenyang.

In 1981, aged barely 13, Ballaké Sissoko and his cousin Toumani Diabaté reformed the Mali Instrumental Ensemble that was founded by his father. A self-taught musician, Ballaké Sissoko has played all over the world with musicians including Kandia Kouyaté, Toumani Diabaté, with the Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, and with the cellist Vincent Ségal. Today, he is one of the greatest kora players in the world, a string instrument from West Africa. According to legend, the first kora was the personal instrument of a woman-genius who lived in the Kansala caves in Gambia. With Ballake Sissoko, the myth crosses the Great Wall of China.
 

Born in 1967 in Bamako (Mali), Ballaké Sissoko is the son of the kora virtuoso, Djelimady Sissoko. He handles the weight of expectation with dignity, and has gone on to become a ‘griot’ (a traditional storyteller), against the advice of his father.
