Small Combos

Experience the collaborative strains of a father-son flamenco guitar and cello duo on this New Sounds.  Begun in France, and finished in Brooklyn (with guitarist for The National and creator of Clogs, Bryce Dessner, producing the record), the focus for these works was on improvisation after deciding not to use the demos.

The resulting record, “Barlande” is rooted in Flamenco, to be sure, but it has grown beyond to encompass space, stasis, and a melting pot of other worldly traditions.  We’ll hear some of “Barlande” and other works for small groups of instruments, like a tune by Argentinian bandoneonist Dino Saluzzi with his guitar playing son José, joined by Swedish bassist Palle Danielsson from their record, "Responsorium."  Plus, music for kora and cello from Ballaké Sissoko and Vincent Ségal, from their excellent, "Chamber Music."  And more.
