Sissoko plays a 21-string harp called a kora. His recent collaborations with French cellist Vincent Segal have produced delicately sweet and darkly soulful music. Their album-length collaboration, Chamber Music, was filled with subtly layered textures that build into gorgeous arrangements. Sissoko’s latest release, At Peace, builds upon the same intricate latticework with equally impressive results.
