Derek Gripper - Kora Guitar - Sept 10 at DROM
(Published: August 17, 2013)


Derek Gripper - African Kora For Guitar
First Time Ever
Sept 10 - at DROM - One Night Only - 8pm

Come see the music of the African string-instrument, the Kora, performed as never before - on the guitar! This is unique music from a rich culture that will broaden your personal musical horizons.

South African Derek Gripper is the world's first guitarist to successfully translate the music of the 21-string West African kora onto solo guitar. He performs for one night only on September 10 at 8:00pm at DROM.

Gripper's ninth recording, One Night on Earth: Music from the Strings of Mali, captures his extraordinary interpretations of the music of Malian composers Toumani Diabaté, Ali Farka Touré, and Ballaké Sissoke in a record that Songlines Magazine has called "a staggering achievement," selecting the album as a Top of the World album for March 2013.

ONE NIGHT ONLY
DROM
Tue, Sept 10, 2013
Set 8:00pm
Cover: $12 Advance Price / $16 Door Price
For revervations call 212-777-1157
DROM: Located at 85 Avenue A (b/w 5th & 6th), NYC

Banning Eyre of Afropop Worldwide calls the result "astounding, not just for its technical brilliance, but its musicality. Gripper executes these pieces with the precision and attention to detail one might expect from a great classical musician...It's hard to imagine a more impressive and passionate rendering of Malian music on classical guitar, particularly from a person who has done it all his own way."
(Banning Eyre, America's African guitar guru reviews "One Night On Earth".)
