The Raw Men Empire

Diallo House Quartet
Saturday, November 10│9pm – 12am
Diallo House Quartet hails from New York. These musical, spiritual and philosophical brothers have honed their unique talents to bring the world a new spectrum of lyrical, rhythmic, and original jazz compositions that are consistently timeless. “Diallo House lays down deep, heavy lines grounded in a foundation of intricate, modern jazz-funk. He also shows off some beautiful compositional touches with tunes like “Atiba Blue,” a slow burning piece of soul-jazz with a sexy R&B groove.” –Warren Allen, All About Jazz
