YAYA DIALLO

Honored with the “Entertainer of the Year” Award by African People’s International Awards in Washington DC, July 4, 2005

YAYA DIALLO, Malian musician, author, teacher and “Healing Drum Tour” guide to Mali has turned his attention to cultural and social issues of his native country and the African continent. With the creation of “Farafina Donia” a survival school for traditional African culture in Bamako, Mali Yaya Diallo directs his attention to the transmission of traditional values and knowledge. The center emphasizes education with insights to local customs for both the African and the international community as means of alleviating the spread of the HIV virus.

As an initiate in secret traditional tribal customs in his native village Fienso in Mali and a graduate of the University of Montreal Yaya Diallo posesses a unique background to bridge diverse cultures.
