HIFA 2-7 May

Derek Gripper

Music • Tickets: $10.00

South African guitarist and HIFA-favourite Derek Gripper translates the music of the kora onto solo guitar. His ninth recording, One Night on Earth captures his extraordinary interpretations of the music of Malian composers Toumani Diabaté, Ali Farka Touré, and Ballaké Sissoke in a record that Songlines Magazine called ‘a staggering achievement,’ selecting the album as a Top of the World album for March 2013. Derek's output extends beyond Africa to include interpretations of the works of Brazilian composers, collaborations with classical Indian tabla, South African folk sounds, and arrangements of J.S. Bach's solo violin works.


Gripper's world class ability ‘is able to transcend the instrument itself.’ Guitar International
