Stunningly Beautiful Work - A Treat! Jan. 19 2011
By Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collaboration speaks volumes about how artists can find common ground from separate cultures and the world can benefit. This work draws exclusively from the African compositions but the cello is presented in a way that is both totally consistent with the African melodies yet with its own voice. For example, in Mako Mady the two instruments complement each other in notation and tonal qualities. They and the performers all just seem perfectly matched. Other cuts make for more disparate interaction, but still complementing each other perfectly. And the performers play as though they had been together for years, certainly a tribute to their own musical insights and skills. This may simply be the most appealing "fusion" music undertaking in the last decade, whether in "world" music or elsewhere. One can only hope that these marvelously sensitive artists continue their collaboration.

For those of you who think it's all been done.... Jan. 19 2011
By Kevin L. Junemann - Published on Amazon.com
Just listen and do some basic internet searching to learn about the players. It's like a history of the world at once encountered and interpreted to remind us of our unity through music. Very cool.

Harmony of Timbre and Improvisational Spirit April 8 2012
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In this unique collaboration, the timbres of mellow bowed baritone cello and plucked alto kora harp produce a sonically gorgeous album. Until track 4, the tempo is slow and the mood meditative and quiet; but this piece is a dance whose riff repetition at the end is trancelike. At first in the album, Segal plays accompaniment to Sissoko's melodic kora; in track 5, Histoire de Molly, it is the cello that lays down the melody for subsequent improvisations. The following work, again a Segal composition, raises the mood with a sweet whirling tune. The griot Sissoko, a master of his instrument and Malian musical traditions, performs with gentleness. He sings in track 7, and he sings well. Track 8, Halinkata Djoubé, is among the best, with each musician alternating the lead playing similar improvisations. The harmony of spirit and feeling is remarkable throughout the 55-minute long album. Overall, it is soft, lyrical, and intimate. This is not the strong, lively, rhythmic music we typically associate with Africa. This chamber music is of the stillness of night and reflections of the human condition.

Classical African Music April 9 2011
By Stephania D. Byrd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD is magnificent. I use the music to differentiate between percussion of Africa and other classical music in the class I teach in African literature. Music is an everyday experience and it underscores the oral traditions read by my students.
Great songs June 2 2014

After listening all the songs from At Peace release on npr few months back, I decided to do the follow up on previous releases. And I wasn't disappointed. I listen to them while at work all the time, and I highly recommend to anyone to give them any of the releases a try.
