Derek Gripper and Tunde Jegede: Guitar and Kora

Derek Gripper and Tunde Jegede: Guitar and Kora

Mon 1 January 0001 - Sat 27 July 2019
Seligman Theatre

Two of the world’s most unclassifiable string players join together for the first time since their sold-out performances in John Williams’ widely acclaimed 2014 and 2015 concert series at Shakespeare’s Globe. Jegede, a master kora player, cellist and composer of Nigerian and Irish decent brings his dynamic and cosmopolitan musical intelligence to bear on the heart of the Malian griot repertoire with South African guitarist Derek Gripper, who has been earning slack-jawed praise from Capetown to Carnegie Hall adapting music for the 21-string kora to the 6-string classical guitar.
