Ali Boulo Santo Cissoko & Volker Goetze (FR/US)

The kora gets along very well with the trumpet. The best proof is the acoustic duets of Volker Goetze, who lives in New York, with Ablaye Cissoko, an internationally renowned virtuoso of the West African "harp lute". In France, they even stormed the (pop) charts. This year, the trumpeter and Jazz & the City regular brings Ablaye's brother Ali Boulo Santo Cissoko, known from numerous tours with Trilok Gurtu, and a new repertoire with arrangements of traditional melodies from West Africa to Salzburg - a premiere that will not be heard in album form until 20222 at the earliest.
