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. Don’t miss this performance.
