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 widely acclaimed African Strings Project (featuring John Bashengezi from the Congo and Kinobe from Uganda)!

Event sponsored by SugarTop Buddery — STB and Rose City Wellness Beaumont.

~ 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.

~ Derek Gripper's African Strings Project ~

Derek Gripper's widely acclaimed African Strings Project (featuring John Bashengezi from the Congo and Kinobe from Uganda) performs original, contemporary and traditional material from the mother continent, while it celebrates the astonishing beauty and diversity of Africa's immense contribution to human expression, art and culture.

~ Johnathan Singer ~

The entrepreneurial spirit drove Johnathan Singer from an early age. By 24, he’d begun a career in publishing a socially conscious lifestyle magazine in Southern California called “West Side Life.” This exposed him to a wide range of artists, musicians, presenters and live performance personnel.

Moved to become an artist in his own right, Singer began performing real-time multimedia light shows for the musicians he’d met while publishing the magazine. Pushing the boundaries of technology, his performances lead to a new art form incorporating computer-generated images, texture maps, custom 3D animations and special effects to inspire his audiences visual and auditory experience. Now an innovative Video Performance Artist, Singer has grown his own business performing around the world, mixing and integrating live visionary art with video to live music.

Along with creating content for world renowned Lighting Designers and VJs, Johnathan is designing and producing DVDs for music producers, musicians and visionary artists.
