Square South. 8:00 pm. No one who has ever been to a concert by guitarist,

Guinean languages. He is a virtuoso musician whose dexterous acoustic and
electric guitar-playing, with its fluid melodic lines and compelling grooves,
places him in the front ranks of African musicians. In 2007, Diallo created
Imme Africa / Get Up Africa as the only North American artist approached by the
United Nations to create a new work for a compilation CD to raise awareness
around the issues of HIV/AIDS, hunger, and debt relief in Africa. Diallo has
performed as part of the African Guitar Summit, the 2010 Winter Olympics in
Vancouver and the Montreal Jazz Festival.
