SK Kakraba, Ghanaian Xylophonist

I recently discovered (via this LA Weekly article), that there’s a world class Ghanaian xylophonist (gyil player to be precise) living in my neighborhood, so naturally I contacted him to see if I could arrange a photo session. His name is SK Kakraba, and he kindly invited me over to his house, where I shot these photos today. Angeleno’s can catch him this Friday performing at the beautiful Getty Museum.
