With the help of WESTAF and NEA, Lopez Center is happy to present a brilliant evening with Alpha Yaya Diallo. Don't miss this concert!

Guitarist and singer Alpha Yaya Diallo, from Guinea in West Africa, is one of the most popular Canadian World Music artists. Now based in Vancouver, he’s earned a matchless reputation for the excellence of his musicianship and the excitement of his “live” shows"whether performing solo or with his band.

Diallo is a multi-talented artist. His dexterous acoustic and electric guitar playing, with its fluid melodic lines and compelling grooves, places him in the front ranks of African guitarists. In addition, he’s a skilled and experienced performer on a variety of percussion instruments and on the balafon (traditional marimba). Alpha also writes all of his compositions and sings with a supple, high, and beautifully modulated voice.

Concert will be held outdoors, bring a chair if you can. No alcohol please. Food will be available for sale.
