Kronos and Trio Da Kali receive Songlines Music Award
This weekend, Songlines Magazine, in association with Soundcrash Music, hosted its inaugural Songlines Music Awards ceremony at London’s Electric Brixton to celebrate the tenth annual distribution of the world music awards. Kronos is honored to have received the Fusion category award with Trio Da Kali (Fodé Lassana Diabaté, Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté, and Mamadou Kouyaté) for our collaborative album Ladilikan, released last year on World Circuit Records. We picked up the award with Lassana, Hawa and Mamadou, as well as producers Nick Gold and Dr. Lucy Durán, when we were last in London.
Congratulations to all of the winners – Angélique Kidjo, Maya Youssef, Oumou Sangare, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino, Rhiannon Giddens, Black String, and Eliza Carthy and The Wayward Band – and nominees. Learn more >
