Episode 204 features an interview with Kiya Tabassian from the early music ensemble Constantinople. This polished 3 piece band are playing music influenced by music from the  Persian Court but their curiosity and enthusiasm for collaboration and improvisation has seen them working with a long list of trans global musicians, including the Senegalese Kora virtuoso, Ableye Cissoko. Together Ablaye and Constantinople have recorded 2 albums, the most recent called Traversées, released in 2019
