Derek Gripper

With special guest Redmond O’Toole

Derek Gripper is known for his ground breaking technique for evoking the West African kora on the guitar. He has transcribed the complex music of Malian kora player Toumani Diabaté and infuses his interpretations of Bach’s music with lessons from the oral traditions of Africa.
