‘Kôrôlén’ is a very special collaboration between two titans in music: Toumani Diabaté, the Grammy-winning Malian kora virtuoso, and the London Symphony Orchestra, renowned worldwide for their performances of orchestral music on record, film and stage.
The title translates from the Mandinka language as ‘ancestral’ – a fitting theme for an album that brings together ancient griot melodies and Western orchestral arrangements.
Resulting in a beautiful and fresh sound that will appeal to admirers of African, traditional and new classical, and ambient music, you can listen to the first track ‘Hainamady Town’ below.
