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.

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.
