Derek Gripper

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Derek Gripper is a South African classical guitarist who embarked on a journey through different musical styles when he found classical guitar music too limiting. His explorations and studies found him learning diverse styles from India, Cape Town and West Africa, but he always applied what he discovered to the guitar.

Gripper’s 2018-19 concerts explore the dialogue between the disparate styles that have informed his work to date: the West African Kora, Bach, South African jazz, Contemporary Classical and large scale improvisations. This diverse palate creates music that is at once intimate and explosive, improvised and composed, traditional and new.
