Crocodile River Music
Some of the members have performed in Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble and one of the musicians plays the balafon, a UNESCO World Heritage protected instrument.
Balla Kouyate and Zack Combs, two of the band’s founding members, joined us with a preview - and a special Studio 5 performance.
