In his quest to illuminate the beauty of African guitar music, South African guitarist and "master musician" Derek Gripper (Rolling Stone) renders the great kora works of Malian masters Toumani Diabaté, Ballaké Sissoko, and others for classical guitar. Transcribing the works originally written for the 21-string kora (harp lute) for a six-string classical guitar, Gripper magically transforms an ambitious technical feat into atmospheric works of “depthless beauty” (SongLines). Experience a centuries-old ancient African musical heritage performed by a deeply sensitive and virtuosic performer.
Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
