In-Store: Sun Apr 2nd: Germán López

In-store performances 18 March 2017 | 0 Comments


We’re pleased to welcome Germán López for a free in-store appearance on Sunday April 2nd at 2:30pm.

Later that night he will be giving a Cap Global Roots performance at Presentation House Theatre. More info & tickets here.

German_Lopez_ektron_2“Virtuoso timple player Germán López hails all the way from the Canary Islands off the Southern Coast of Spain and is bringing his unique and modern take on timple music to venues all over the world. Imagine the lovechild of a ukulele and a guitar and you have the small but resonant 5-string timple. Similar to the South American cavaquinho, cuatro and charango, the instrument’s precise and singing voice floats effortlessly in and out of complex patterns when under the fingers of López. Though a traditional Canarian folk instrument, the timple has been revived by players such as López in the last 15 years. Recently he has been collaborating in jazz-fusion projects, with symphony orchestras and on his recent album, De Raiz, he experiments with flamenco and global influences, weaving multiple elements in order to create something fresh and nostalgic all at once. Featuring Germán López on timple and Antonio Toledo on guitar.”

Derek Gripper

Gripper magically conjures anew a centuries-old ancient African musical heritage, interpreting kora compositions (21 string harp) on solo guitar, a feat which classical guitar legend John Williams said he thought was “absolutely impossible until I heard Derek Gripper do it.”

“When Kora maestro Toumani Diabate heard these recordings he asked his producer Lucy Duran to confirm that she had actually seen one person play this music on just one guitar. He immediately invited Derek to collaborate with him in Mali, an invitation which saw Derek performing at the Acoustik Festival Bamako in early 2016, the first international festival held in Mali since 2012.”

Gripper is then playing Sunday night at Presentation House Theatre.

Friday August 17 @ 9 PM with Los Migrantes.
DJ culture has helped to keep vinyl alive from Sound Systems in Jamaica to Hip Hop in Brooklyn, and Drum & Bass in England.  Come learn about vinyl from how a record is made, to the science of how it works, the fundamentals of turntablism, and the history of what continues to be the most high quality musical medium.  Los Migrantes will showcase some of their favorite record covers and picture discs, including many limited edition and rare LPs, lead an interactive multimedia presentation and perform live with special guests from the community.
Los Migrantes (Su Comandante & Stahz Grandson): Arriving from different planes on the same stolen land to be welcomed by denial then raised by anti’s, mentored by stereos and reclaimed by community, Los Migrantes’ sound is influenced by their routes.
