french jazz brings in some nice influences, as here with the oud & the derbouka (i had to look derbouka up.. oh! so that’s what that is called…).  the oud is a beautiful instrument, in so many ways, and i enjoyed hearing it in a slightly different context.  it all works together very well.  another performance you might like is ballaké sissoko & vincent segal at jazz à vienne 2020; i am not at all familiar with the kora, that ballaké sissoko plays – a lovely sound, give that a listen.
