Program

Jubilee will feature Master Musicians of the Aga Khan Music Initiative and special guests Kronos Quartet and Bassekou Kouyaté in a performance of newly-created compositions that exemplify the way musical creativity has historically developed from the meeting of different cultures.

The first half of the concert features Master Musicians of the Aga Khan Music Initiative (AKMI) and Kronos Quartet, who have been working with AKMI since 2008.

In the second half of the program, AKMI’s Masters will be joined by a trio of Malian musicians led by the ngoni player Bassekou Kouyaté, a long-term AKMI collaborator whose recording “Segu Blue” won Album of the Year & African Artist of the Year at the BBC Radio 3 Awards for World Music and received a Grammy nomination for the follow-up “I Speak Fula.”  The trio also includes Kouyaté’s wife Amy Sacko and daughter Oumou Kouyaté on vocals.
