Claude Diallo Situation

His ear­ly love to Jazz hap­pened through the music of Oscar Peter­son and after intense stud­ies at Berklee Col­lege of Music in Boston and the Aaron Cop­land School of Music in New York, Claude Dial­lo launched his career in the city that nev­er sleeps and stayed there for 11 years, col­lab­o­rat­ing with the best musi­cians in his field.

With his mot­to: Trav­el­ing with Music, he start­ed tour­ing out­side of his native Switzer­land at the age of 20 and through his curios­i­ty, admi­ra­tion and pas­sion towards oth­er cul­tures, he built a world­wide net­work, which is still growing.
