It’s one of our most beautiful collaborations.

Kronos’ artistic director, founder, and violinist David Harrington was recently interviewed about Ladilikan, the quartet’s recent collaborative album with Malian griot group Trio Da Kali, by both The Guardian and Radio New Zealand.

From The Guardian piece: “The first time David Harrington met Trio Da Kali, they made him cry. [He] was at the home of a colleague in London where he was to be introduced to the three Malian musicians. The door opened and there stood Hawa Diabaté, who spontaneously broke into a Malian praise song on the threshold. ‘She was smiling and singing for me,’ Harrington tells me. Her song moved him to tears. Almost five years later, he is still spellbound. ‘It was incredible to be brought into a world of music I’d never encountered.’”
