Germán López is an esteemed timple player from Gran Canaria, an island making up an archipelago off the coast of Africa, pertaining to the nation of Spain. At the age of seven he entered the Conservatory of Music of Las Palmas, acquiring an eventual master’s degree in the latter in 2001. Since the age of ten, Germán has been performing publicly, which now includes collaborations with the symphony orchestra of Gran Canaria, festivals such as WOMAD, Circuits INJUVE, Expozaragoza, among others. As a conservatory-trained musicians, Germán López blend the the ancient traditions of the Canary Islands with musical virtuosity. He recently starred in the opening ceremony of the annual WOMEX conference (2014) earning himself an unexpected, spontaneous standing ovation.

The timple (pronounced: tim-PLAY) is a diminutive, 5-stringed instrument intrinsic to music of the Canary Islands. Unlike the ukulele that it resembles, it has a full resonance despite its high timbre, possibly due to its rounded back.
