A musical journey - A truly incredible experience!
The award-winning all-star band African Guitar Summit gathers some of Africa’s most distinctive and best-known guitarists in a full band setting. African Guitar Summit is actually several solo stars and bandleaders supporting each other in this group: Guinea-born singer-guitarist Alpha Yaya Diallo, Madagascar guitarists Donné Roberts and Madagascar Slim, and Ghana born drummer Kofi Ackah, along with electric bass and balafon (African marimba) played by Guinea’s Naby Camara.
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!
Their debut CD “African Guitar Summit” was honoured with a Juno as World Music Album of the Year at the 2005 Juno Awards in April. Their second album, “African Guitar Summit II”, garnered a 2007 Juno award nomination in the same category.
