3MA: Ballaké Sissoko, Driss El Maloumi and Rajery

Organised by Cultural Foundation

One of the most prestigious ensembles in North African classical music, 3MA: Ballaké Sissoko, Driss El Maloumi and Rajery, will be bringing a unique blend of African and Arab tunes to Abu Dhabi.

3MA is a trio of virtuosi string musicians, emblematic of their African countries, but who share a musical passion, a reciprocal dialogue and a beautiful friendship. 

In 2006, when the Malian kora player Ballaké Sissoko met Moroccan oud maestro Driss El Maloumi and Malagasy ‘prince of the valiha’ Rajery, they could have given up after a few concerts and a final recording - as have many other artists.

However, the mesmerising tremour that rose out of their instruments when they first performed together still resonates today. Driven by the pleasure of an exceptional musical relationship and a vital human connection, they have continued to meet regularly and joyfully, their reunions continuously enriching their solo careers.
