It's already been 5 years since French cellist Vincent Segal and Malian kora player Ballaké Sissoko created their wonderful 'Chamber Music' album in Salif Keita's Moffou studio in Bamako. For this "successor" the duo even went a step further in their quest to find the pure essence of their music. Segal once again flew to Mali, where part of the tracks were recorded in the middle of the night on the roof of Sissoko's home (also explaining the album's title, 'Musique De Nuit' or "night music"). For the other songs the duo headed to the late Ali Farka Toure's legendary Bogolan studio and the result is an album possibly sounding even more intimate than 'Chamber Music'. And, yes, if you think in some tracks you're hearing a goat bleating in the background, then that is indeed a goat bleating in the background!
