Due to unforeseen personal medical circumstances, it is with a heavy heart we announce that Toumani Diabaté will no longer be performing alongside groundbreaking electronic composer Tipper. We realize that a 71st generation Malian kora master and legend is irreplaceable, but we are honored to announce that we’ve found another legend whom Toumani has championed and worked closely with, Derek Gripper’s African Strings Project.

TIPPER

Humbled by his creative longevity and standing, Tipper’s approach to each performance demands he present previously unheard original and unreleased material, underlining his ethos that the audience should be equally moved and entertained. His prowess with live scratching and turntablism makes him one of the rare producers who can not only replicate his sound in a live setting, but also add exciting improvisational energy. The respect he shows for his ever growing fan-base makes Tipper a must hear (and see) for music lovers of any kind. This is your opportunity to experience a true innovator and pioneer of electronic music.

“When I realized my heart was no longer in static media I began experimenting with the fascinating fluidity of light—how it related to music, how they flowed together into a visual language my computer could speak and then I could project. I realized the correlation between an open heart to the divine and the alchemical combination of light and color. There are no limitations with an imagination.”
