For more than 10 years, Derek Gripper has produced some of South Africa’s most extraordinary music with his unique ability to interpret complex compositions played with the Kora – a 21-stringed traditional West African lute for solo guitar.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as ‘a genre unto herself’, Kaki King is a true iconoclast. The Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist has released eight extraordinary and distinctive albums, and her latest work, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body, is Kaki at her visionary best - redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination and boundless humanity.
