Last Thursday Trafalgar Middle School held an assembly that featured a performance by Amigo Diego, a Latin American music and culture group. Diego Alcatraz has performed as a professional musician for over 50 years. He was originally one of the trio El Presidantes from Mexico; a very popular group that performed for five Mexican presidents and is still heard on Mexican radio today. Diego has made Penticton his home for the past 30 years. A total of 450 students clapped, sang, and even gave bull fighting a go.
