about

A collection of solo guitar music by Derek Gripper, Egberto Gismonti and Alex van Heerden. This recording represents compositions and arrangements from 2009, revisiting some of the South African flavour of Derek’s first release “Blomdoorns.”

“The songs flow gently into one another, and the album, when listened to as a whole, is...mesmerising. The melodies and themes are subtle, yet evoke a range of feelings and textures..."Kai Kai" is an intriguing sample of Gripper's musical journey and manages to be both beautifully simple and subtly layered with meaning.” [Douglas Roger for Music Industry Online]

“Kai Kai” is an inspiring album that like all good music grows on you, and becomes more enjoyable with each listen.” [Ettienne Buys, Cape Town Underground
