September 21: World Spirit Concert

With Arga Bileg and Derek Gripper

The Festival comes to a close with transcendent music from Mongolia and South Africa. Arga Bileg fuses jazz improvisation with Mongolian traditional music; Derek Gripper takes genres as diverse as African kora compositions and baroque violin and transforms them, exquisitely, on classical guitar.
