West African Balafon

West African Balafon

© Emile Snyder, photographed in 1963. Please contact me at the blog if you want permission to use this image. My father traveled through Senegal, Guinea, Mali and the Ivory Coast. But I am fairly certain this photograph is from Conakry, Guinea based on his archived recordings at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA) which lists a Balafon orchestra in Conakry.
