Paolo Angeli & Derek Gripper
A double bill of solo guitars. Paolo Angeli, the Sardinian guitar sorcerer, extracts beautiful multi-layered music from his uniquely prepared guitar; a hybrid orchestra of an instrument with multi-directional strings, hammers, pedals and propellers which he bows, strikes, plucks and strums.
Derek Gripper creates a new form of classical guitar music out of some of Africa’s richest musical heritage; fusing the country’s disparate creative traditions with styles throughout the world: European classical traditions, avant-garde Brazilian works, Malian kora works, Cape Town’s folk styles, and even Indian classical music, synthesizing them into a style uniquely his own.
