A masterclass in the sonic possibilities of the guitar, Derek Gripper performs a 21-string kora composition from Mali on a six-string classical guitar, a feat which the legendary John Williams said was “absolutely impossible until I heard Derek Gripper do it.” An engagingly honest and fresh interpretation of music that perfectly balances tradition with real innovation.
“An astonishing guitarist”
