Derek Gripper Plays Ali Farka Touré


Derek-Gripper1South African guitarist Derek Gripper plays some music by Ali Farka Touré. This is from Casimi Guitars via their YouTube: “Derek Gripper test driving a Casimi Flamenco Blanca in the Casimi Guitar workshop”. Gripper put out a fantastic album in 2012 called One Night on Earth: Music from the Strings of Mali, you can read my review of the album here. There is something so relaxing about Gripper’s playing, it just seems un-hurried and smooth.
