French festival organisers love fusion. An event in Montpelier first brought together Fanga and Abdallah Guinea, and it was a Marseilles festival that commissioned the eclectic London-based New York rapper and folk-soul-reggae artist Joe Driscoll to work with Guinean kora virtuoso Sekou Kouyate, who is best known for his playing with Ba Cissoko. The two musicians don't have a language in common, but their collaboration is a gloriously accessible collision of styles. It starts with a throbbing riff and furious workout from Kouyate that explains why the French call him the "Hendrix of the kora". Then Driscoll eases in with cool, rhythmic vocals and guitar work in a style that segues from soul to hip-hop and reggae, with Kouyate adding inspired kora improvisation. It's an unlikely collaboration that works, magnificently, especially on the angry, driving and rhythmic Birnakely. There's only one problem: at 37 minutes, it's too short.
