South African kora guitarist Derek Gripper and Indian slide guitarist and Debashish Bhattacharya as they make their North American touring début.

After becoming enthralled with the sound of the kora (21-string African harp), Derek decided to transfer the kora repertoire onto a six-string guitar. This feat has helped build a new repertoire of classical guitar music.

Equally as inventive, Debashish has reinvented Indian raga music with the development of his signature Indian slide guitars and playing technique.

Each of these artists has redefined the styles of music possible on their instrument while inventing new playing techniques and composing new works. Together, they provide a musical experience unlike any other.
