Flamenco improvisations play with the fluid and crystalline sounds of the kora. With this project, forming the basis of his album Kora Flamenca, Zal Sissokho, the Montréal griot and virtuoso of this majestic 21-string instrument, offers a real surprise. “Although the two types of music may breathe differently, the dialogue flows naturally. The kora never falls behind the syncopated and sometimes frenzied rhythms of flamenco, and the voice of Zal Sissokho remains just as cool and undulating as if he were singing Mandinka blues” (La Presse, 2020). A performance of great beauty.
