Kora Player Ablaye Cissoko & Trumpeter Volker Goetze Visit The Bridge: August 3rd, 10 pm
A special evening is in store for you as host J. Michael Harrison welcomes two fascinating musicians to The Bridge: Senegalese kora player Ablaye Cissoko and German jazz trumpet player Volker Goetze. It's been several years since their last appearance on the show, and a lot has transpired.
The duo will discuss their new CD, Amanke Dionti, the follow up to the critically acclaimed recording, Sira, and share details of a recently completed documentary that provides unique insight into Cissoko's life in Senegal.
You'll also hear a couple of live tracks recorded during their visit to WRTI. Join us Friday night at 10 pm!
