Hi
Somehow the photo doesn't look right to me (in particular the hats and dress don't quite look Ghanaian). I think the group pictured is actually Poly-Rhythmo. Not sure though, just a feeling. Thanks for the music.

@ anonymous - thanks for the info. I hunted the internet trying to find pictures of the Ogyatanaa Show Band and that was the only photo I could find. But now you have me wondering.. I might take it down. Let me ponder this over night.

No do not take the photo down. The costume is Ghanaian; The skirt is called "dorsor" in twi. It is worn by fetish priests. It is obsolate now. Many years ago those fetish priests, or the shaman display their artistry in the night; Mostly at open spaces with bonfires to give light for the spectators.
