Koinonia - featuring Alex Acuña

I have know the group Koinonia since the 80's, but at that time I didn't know who they were of course. I learned about them when I was in highschool, 1991 or 1992. That's where I discovered that it was the same group who played music when Ron Kenoly was performing. Of course I was happy when I found out they were/are devoted christians!

Well, here I will highlight one of the musicians of them: Alex Acuña. He was born in Peru, December 12 1944. In the 1980s Acuña also recorded and toured with the Christian jazz band Koinonia, which featured session musicians Abraham Laboriel, Justo Almario, Hadley Hockensmith, Harlan Rogers, and Bill Maxwell. He played on Willy DeVille's Crow Jane Alley album and in 1987 he teamed up with Elvis Presley's TCB Band for the Roy Orbison TV special "A Black and White Night". He played percussion on Blondie's number one hit "The Tide Is High".

He has also worked as an educator at University of California, Los Angeles and Berklee College of Music.

Watch these two videos where he shows his marvelous talent.
