African Guitar Summit
March 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Experience live this superb and unique achievement for African music; the mix of musicians who are distinct in cultural backgrounds and languages yet sharing stories and singing each other’s praises, the inspiration of these skilled hands and voices joined in common to reach the summit…A truly incredible experience!
Indulge in the sounds of the finest Canadian guitarists of African origin and the 2005 Juno Award winners for World Music Album of the Year. This star-studded collective unites the talents of six musicians, each an expert in their individual style and together creating musical magic. African Guitar Summit features the smooth fire of Juno Award winner Alpha YaYa Diallo from Guinea, the quicksilver guitars and harmonies of Donne Roberts and multiple Juno Award winner Madagascar Slim, both from Madagascar, and the heartbeat of drummer Kofi Ackah from Ghana. They are backed by electric bass and balafon, the African marimba, played by Naby Camara from Guinea.
