      YAYA DIALLO'S classic instrumental album "Nangapè" of West African
      drumming, balafon and flute music is reissued on CD in 2002 on the
      Onzou Records label.

      This is Yaya Diallo's 1980 debut album that continues to bring
      international recognition to his work as master drummer, musician,
      teacher, author, composer, dancer, healer, lecturer, storyteller
      and "Healing Drum Tour" guide to Mali, West Africa.

      Yaya Diallo, a native of Mali, West Africa and major custodian of
      West African music and culture shares a diverse range of music on
      Onzou Records:

      "Nangapè" combines personal expression with traditional forms.

      "Dounoukan" offers insight into the village music at the heart of
      African society.

      "Live at Club Soda" bridges traditional and popular music in a new
      genre of music emerging in Mali known as KANZA. On the "LIve at Club
      Soda" album Yaya Diallo transposes the music to Occidental
      instruments including saxophone, violin, bass and electric guitars,
      drumset and voice as well as traditional drums.

      "Nangapè," as well as other albums by Yaya Diallo on the Onzou
      Records label can be listened to on New Music Canada,

      Onzou Records collaborates with Yaya Diallo to produce his music and
      shares his goals of creating traditional African healing centers to
      transmit the music, culture and knowledge of his heritage to future
      generations.
