The Dennos Museum Center invites you to indulge in the sounds of the finest Canadian guitarists of African origin – 2005 Juno Award winners for World Music Album of the Year – African Guitar Summit. This star-studded collective unites the talents of 5 musicians, each an expert in their individual style and together creating musical magic with African Guitar Summit. (note to press – the original African Guitar Summit is composed of 9 musicians most of whom have their own bands – hence the entire group can rarely travel together due to other commitments, but the this group features the main members)
Do not miss the opportunity to 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 others praises, the inspiration of these skilled hands and voices joined in common to reach the summit…A truly incredible experience!
