Mali Diary (Diario Mali) is a studio recording of duets between the highly successful Italian classical-crossover pianist, Ludovico Einaudi, and Mali musician Ballake Sissoko - one of the most gifted ækoraÆ players in Africa. This unexpected collaboration was recorded in February 2003, less than a month after they had appeared together at the now famous Festival in the Desert. They had a track included on the best-selling CD of the event.

It turns out that the cello is just about the perfect instrument to compliment the kora. The cello is legato where the kora is pointillist; it is lustrous and mellow where the kora is bright and brittle; and yet both instruments share a profound capacity for serenity, so that even as they contrast most sharply, they can remain unified in purpose. That said, in the wrong hands, a confab of cello and kora could easily devolve into a New Age snooze fest or a tedious exercise in classical music light. So the success of Chamber Music must really be credited to the remarkable musicians who created it, and to their playful, confident, and utterly transparent musical friendship.

Ballake Sissoko opens his new album, “At Peace,” with “Maimouna,” his solo showcase for the kora, the West African harp with 21 strings rising vertically from a huge calabash gourd. For those unfamiliar with the instrument, its broad range, sparkling tone and shimmering effects are vividly displayed here. For those who do know the kora, Sissoko is a virtuoso who can run through a blur of speeding notes and then brake for a crisply articulated theme. On this piece, Sissoko repeats the same descending figure, but with the melodic path and rhythmic organization slightly altered each time.

Seven years after their previous recording, the Persian percussionists Trio Chemirani return, nourished by rich musical experimentation and by meetings with musicians from the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and Africa. Father Djamchid and sons Keyvan and Bijan have all collaborated musically with a large and diverse array of musicians over the years, many of which recordings have appeared on Accords Croises. For this new album, recorded in Paris, they put together an awesome list of invitees - kora maestro Ballaké Sissoko, pianist Omar Sosa, bassist Renaud Garcia-Fons, Ross Daly on lyra and rebab, jazz guitarist Sylvain Luc, and on bouzouki Titi Robin.
