Grand Performances & Temple Israel of Hollywood Present Ballaké Sissoko & Vincent Segal: A Spellbinding Night of Music

Sissoko and Segal will perform at Temple Israel Hollywood-produced by Grand Performances.o

Exquisite, Virtuosic Performance will take place on Wednesday, November 1 at 7:30PM.


Los Angeles, California—–October 2017—–Grand Performances, in conjunction with Temple Israel of Hollywood, presents a spellbinding night of elegant, soulful music from two world-renowned virtuosos, Malian kora master Ballaké Sissoko and French cellist Vincent Segal.

A beautifully unique experience in a unique setting, these gifted musicians will draw from the ancient well of West African troubadour songs, the rich heritage of Baroque music, and an elusive, but somehow clearly modern sensibility, the unexpected, expressive duo have created a unique hybrid tradition all their own.

Sissoko and Segal will be performing songs from their celebrated album Musique de Nuit (Night Music). The musicians weave beautiful nocturnes and lively, dance-based melodies into what The Guardian recently called “an exquisite, gently adventurous evening of West African/European fusion." The duo is signed to the wonderfully eclectic Six Degrees Records where they have released records collectively and independently of each other. Experiencing their music immediately informs the listener that they are in the presence of master performers who are at the top of their craft.

Not to be overlooked this evening is the spectacular venue, Temple of Israel in Hollywood. This beautiful and unique setting completes what promises to be an unforgettable evening.
