Kronos Quartet with Sam Green and Trio da Kali

‘Kronos have changed the way we think about music’

A double dose of Kronos Quartet; looking to their past with a live cinema performance and to the present in their latest collaboration with Trio da Kali.

In A Thousand Thoughts, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sam Green questions how music can change the world – combining archival footage and filmed interviews with Philip Glass, Terry Riley and more, with live narration and music from the quartet. 

The quartet will then be joined by Mali’s young Griot supergroup Trio da Kali, following their exquisite collaboration on album Ladilikan in 2017. A reminder of Kronos Quartet’s spirit of continuous exploration; it’s another reason to be cheerful that they have been making music for 40 years.
