Derek Gripper's arrangement of Toumani Diabaté's "Jarabi" at the Long Street Slave Church in Cape Town (May 2012). This performance sees a 21-string kora composition from Mali finding its expression on a six-string classical guitar at the same venue in which Diabaté performed in 2009. Gripper's work as a "translator" of the West African kora appears on his 2012 album One Night on Earth: Music from the Strings of Mali.
