National Centre for Early Music


Paolo extracts multi-layered music with strings, hammers, pedals and propellers, which he bows, strikes, plucks and strums. His improvised music is a cross between free jazz, minimal pop and post-folk. He has collaborated with Pat Metheny, Fred Frith and Takumi Fukushima. Derek has produced some of South Africa’s most extraordinary musical works by fusing the creative traditions and drawing on European classical traditions, Brazilian and Malian kora works, Cape Town’s folk styles and even Indian classical music. Widely lauded for his exploration of Mali’s greatest kora players, Toumani Diabaté and Ballaké Sissoko, Gripper creates a new form of classical guitar music out of some of Africa’s richest musical heritage.
