about

A live recording of Derek Gripper with master tabla player Udai Mazumdar from India. Some new and some previously recorded compositions from Gripper given new direction by a great tabla virtuoso.

Udai Mazumdar’s ten year sojourn with sitar legend Ravi Shankar is clearly evident in his masterful accompaniment of Cape Town guitarist Derek Gripper’s unique solo guitar works. This combination which first made waves with the combination of Zakir Hussein and John McCloughlin, finds new life and an entirely new direction in Udai and Derek’s on stage interaction.
