Songs from Ladilikan
Works to be announced from the stage

Our first New York appearance with the Malian griot ensemble! We will perform music from our joint album Ladilikan that not only topped several 2017 best-of lists and was lauded in many stand-out reviews, but also just won the tenth annual Songlines Music Award in the Fusion category.

“Trio Da Kali and Kronos Quartet shatter boundaries of culture, genre, faith and ethnicity – all with an ease that must be heard to be believed.” –  NPR’s All Things Considered
