Derek Gripper is the world’s first guitarist to successfully translate the music of the 21-string West African kora onto solo guitar. His 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.

But Gripper’s output extends beyond Africa to include interpretations of the works of Brazilian composer Egberto Gismonti, collaborations with classical Indian tabla, innovation of South African folk sounds, and arrangements of J.S.Bach’s solo violin works.

 

Classical Guitar Magazine called Gripper’s 2011 recording of original compositions set alongside the works of Gismonti “an excellent album…of hypnotic beauty” whilst Guitar International says of the same album that Gripper’s world class ability “is able to transcend the instrument itself.”
