Description

The astonishing South African guitarist Derek Gripper transcribes works for the 21-string West African kora to six-string guitar. His 2012 album One Night on Earth: Music for the Strings of Mali has been extolled for its “depthless beauty” and “dream-like improvisatory nature.” Gripper’s studies of Indian music, Brazilian music, and the works of Steve Reich have colored his recordings and performances, and redefined the sound of South African guitar music.
