Black History Month Concert Series presents Donné Roberts
Music Africa and the Gladstone Hotel present yet another concert series featuring some of the African best talent in Toronto and the diaspora. Tonight we welcome Donné Roberts.
Donné Roberts is a passionate and highly skilled guitarist and vocalist with a very unique sound and style; his songs are mainly in Malagasy his mother tongue from his birthplace of Madagascar. Donné came to wider recognition after he released his first album “Rhythm Was Born” and for his contribution as one of the members of the African Guitar Summit project, which won a JUNO in 2005 and was nominated for another one in 2007. Donné raised and educated in Moscow Russia and now lives in Toronto. In Moscow, he was the first black VJ on MTV Russia. His brand new record INTERNATION was released in 2012. With friends and collaborators, he makes something entirely original and uniquely Canadian that is imbued with a Donné Roberts sound.
