About the Event
Tangents Radio presents Derek Gripper, one of South Africa’s leading guitarists. Derek's love of the West African kora set him transcribing and recording some of its greatest works to the acclaim of luminaries such as kora master Toumani Diabate and classical guitarist John Williams. Derek Gripper changed the face of classical guitar and provided the instrument its very first African repertoire.
"It’s hard to imagine a more impressive and passionate rendering of Malian music on classical guitar.” — Banning Eyre, Afropop Worldwide
