Malian virtuoso Ballaké Sissoko has taken over the mantle of the greatest touring kora player. Derek Gripper is South Africa’s leading guitarist whose love of the kora set him transcribing and recording some of its greatest works. “In the complex web of theme and variations spun by Sissoko’s twenty- two strings and Gripper’s six, a new African string theory is elaborated.

In collaboration with the Alliance Francais and Air France.
