'He will always be an artist who is a legendary, despite the trends and cliches. Every album his origin is kept alive'

Each Alpha Blondy show brings along an impeccable sound with lyrics that are committed with his time and culture and is seen as a universal faith that is based on the values of respect, justice and peace, and is sung in various languages: French, English, Baoule, Diula, Arabic, Malinke, Wolof and Ashanti.
