Ladilikan by Trio Da Kali & Kronos Quartet

If you’d like some beautiful, transporting music for a peaceful Sunday morning, you cannot do better than listen to this stunning album, which mixes traditional griot Malian music from Trio Da Kali with subtle and sympathetic string support from the Kronos Quartet. Hawa Kassé Mady Diabate’s vocals are gorgeous, and the balafon (played by Lassana Diabaté) and bass ngoni (played by Mamadou Kouyaté) blend wonderfully well with the Western string quartet. I will definitely look out for more recordings from Trio Da Kali.
