What you'll do

Journey deeply into Derek Gripper's musical world

The evening has 2 parts. In part 1, over some wine, music producer iain Harris provides the back story to my work, playing extracts from my musical journey, and providing important context to what I do, and the South African music industry. For part 2, iain brings you to my house for a private concert in my lounge (or around the pool if the weather's good). There'll be more excellent wine & snacks

What's included

Where you'll be

For part 1 you will be at iain's HQ in the city, a little oasis of African vibrations. For part 2, you'll be at my house, on the slopes of Table Mountain. It was the first house built on the slopes, back in the 50s, with wooden floors and beautiful acoustics.
