Emmanual Afolabi: The Journey
New work by contributing photographer Emmanuel Afolabi for yagazieemezi.com
"I caught up with Eli Fola, Nigerian born saxophonist and lead singer of NYC’s based world music band known as Dahka Band,  a multi-cultural world band with members  from Algeria, Turkey, Ecuador, and The Philippines. Eli Fola was introduced to music at the age of 9, heavily influenced by the church his parents were a part of in Nigeria. It was there that he joined the choir and there he started learning to play different musical instruments like African drums, congas, piano, and eventually settling with the saxophone."
