The San Francisco–based, Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet and its nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association presents their fourth annual hometown music festival Kronos Festival 2018 this April.

Together for the first time since the release of their critically acclaimed joint album Ladilikan last fall, Kronos and the Malian griot ensemble Trio Da Kali perform music from the LP that topped several year-end best-of lists, including Songlines, fRoots and the Transglobal World Music Chart. Returning from previous festivals are Zakir Hussain, Mahsa Vahdat, Vân-Ánh Võ and the San Francisco Girls Chorus, conducted by Valérie Sainte-Agathe. Kronos also unveils exciting new projects with the wildly performative experimental duo CocoRosie and genre-bending singer-songwriter Jolie Holland. Additional guests to be announced.

This year's festival highlights the expansive sonic worlds of David Coulter, who serves as the festival's artist-in-residence. The British-born, Bay Area–based multidisciplinary artist, musician, composer, director and educator has worked with Kronos since the 1990s. Known for his work with The Pogues, Tom Waits, Robert Wilson, Laurie Anderson, Yoko Ono, Beck and Gorillaz, as well as his theatrical scores, including A.C.T.'s recent production of A Thousand Splendid Suns, Coulter will be featured throughout the festival.

"It is both thrilling and a great honor to have been invited by Kronos Quartet to be artist-in-residence for this festival," says Coulter. "Each time I have collaborated with them it has been an exhilarating voyage into the unknown. We share a sense of adventure and are not afraid of taking risks. As a musician, I am an improviser with a very strong sense of ritual. I look at my work as sonic meditation, a musical exploration of resonance, playing with time, a creation of space, an exploration of emotions to create vivid images. To be given the opportunity to spend several days sharing a stage with some of the most magical performers I know is a fabulous gift."
