i'm pretty sure that's Abdoulaye Diakite, but duga or other folks from the bay area should be able to confirm/deny this.

yes. abdoulaye diakite. he taught in santa cruz for many years as well as the entire bay area. he's currently residing in his hometown of Tambacounda, Senegal.

I recognize everyone except the player on the bottom left. Could be Bolokada?

that's definitely bolokada taken by my good friend Rick Rocamara.

i think that picture was taken in santa cruz when Percussions de Guinee came here. too bad i didnt' even know what i jembe was at that time.
