World class musician visits Lakeport Jan. 3



LAKEPORT – On Sunday, Jan. 3, Lakeport is in for a real treat!

Diego Jameau, a world class musician, will bring his talent to United Christian Parish (UCP) for one day as he joins the music ministry of Wing and a Prayer.

The celebration will begin at 10 a.m.

You will be touched by his presentation of “Amazing Grace,” “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” and more.

Diego Jameau is a rare creative artist who has cultivated his natural talents for music, dance and the fine arts, each to a professional level.

Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Jameau first learned to dance and sing from his mother, the lead dancer in the National Dance Company of Haiti.

While studying with several major dance instructors, he became a member of the nationally-prized dance company, Troupe Bacalou, at age 13, and four years later held a position with Les Danseurs de L’Ile as the company’s lead dancer and choreographer.

At 21, Jameau left Haiti for Europe, where he taught classes and produced full-scale performances in Afro-Haitian music and dance in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, France, England, Canada and the U.S., gaining international acclaim as a leading Afro-Haitian dancer, educator and musician.

Aside from dancing professionally, Jameau attended the Arts Academy of Haiti for a flourishing five years of education in the fine arts, and has been commissioned to do many works that have been exhibited at galleries internationally.

At the present time, Jameau’s professional career strongly focuses on his music performance in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. He has produced and co-produced five music albums since 1999.  He plays a beautiful, soulful acoustic 12-string guitar and is known as “The Whistler” for his lyrical, flute-like whistling.

There is no fee to hear Jameau during the worship service on Jan. 3 but there will be an opportunity to purchase his CD during the coffee hour following and/or to leave an offering for his music if you are so moved.

UCP is located at 745 North Brush St. in Lakeport.

Please call the church at 707-263-4788 for more information.
