Kronos Quartet with Trio Da Kali, Jolie Holland, David Coulter + more

Apr 27
Miner Auditorium

Kronos Quartet and Malian griot ensemble Trio Da Kali perform together for the first time since the release of their joint album Ladilikan last fall. The LP not only topped several year-end best-of lists, including Songlines, fRoots, and the Transglobal World Music Chart, but also inspired Afropop Worldwide to call the collaboration “the most successful encounter between Western classical and traditional African music yet.” Kronos debuts both an exciting project with genre-bending singer-songwriter Jolie Holland and a unique work by local experimental composer, sonic architect and performance artist Guillermo Galindo. Philip Glass’ most recent string quartet also receives its local premiere. More details to be announced, check below for up-to-date program information.
