The Great Performers Series is offered free of charge and shares exciting, live music with the community.
Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal will perform, respectively, on West African kora and cello. This will be an intimate, unplugged, and close up show that features a quite unusual cross cultural mix of instruments and musical systems (for one, the kora is commonly tuned to an equiheptatonic scale--in other words, relatively equal intervals rather than a mix of semi- and whole-tones as deployed in a typical diatonic scale).
