At Peace by Ballaké Sissoko
Released: Feb 2013
Label: Six Degrees
So you thought Ballaké Sissoko's Chamber Music with Vicent Segal was a quiet, intimate affair? Check out the kora player on his own, practicing being At Peace. It goes without saying that this album is gorgeously, lushly hushed, but there's a kind of magic that settles in as you lose yourself in the meditative waterfalls of the kora (and the occasional marimba and even, on the playful "Kalata Diata," fiddle) -- a magic that comes only of feeling like you're being invited to witness a private, meditative moment. Only the slightly bland new age pop of "Asa Branca" breaks the spell.
