About the Artist(s)

Born in North Benin, Africa and chief’s son of the Waama people, this multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter learned the art of storytelling and drumming from his family as they traveled the region sharing their cultural traditions. Now in Canada, Yoro is in great demand as a performer, having mastered the donga (talking drum), kokomba (congas), and djembe. On stage, both solo and with his band, he is a dynamic and mesmerizing performer, drawing you in to the sights, sounds, and rhythms of West Africa.

For this performance, Yoro will be joined by Aly Traoré, a Master Djembe player from Guinee West Africa, and Yato Noukoussi, a studio Session and super skilled live drummer from Vancouver.
