Event Details

Alpha Yaya Diallo’s West African Summit is a music and dance spectacular featuring an all-star West African band under the artistic direction of award-winning choreographer Alejandro Ronceria.

On stage with three-time Juno Award winner Alpha Yaya Diallo: kora master-griot Prince Diabaté, 'balafola'-griot Naby Camara, and the electrifying dance of N’nato Camara and Mabinty Sylla, along with djembefola Mohamed Diaby, Thomas Ehru Niamke (drums), and Vegari Cendar (bass).

This ground-breaking production brings to the stage the wonder of West Africa’s Bafing River. Like the river, the music flows through the sounds and spirit of Senegal, Mali and Guinea, full with the magic of this storied region and its rich cultures.

“Since coming to Canada, I have dreamed about bringing together both the dance and music of Guinea to the stage. N’nato and I have performed together for many years but we have never really built a big show... something with energy and colour and movement... something that explodes on the stage.
I performed with Prince Diabaté at the Vancouver Jazz Festival and Hollywood Bowl in 2000. We’ve wanted to work together ever since and now is the time. And Naby, he is simply one of the best balafon players anywhere.” – Alpha
