Adventures in record collecting

Philip Osey Kojo – Mampong, Ghana

In January 2011 I traveled to Ghana to document a diging trip with Frank Gossner of Voodoo Funk. We met Philip Osei Kojo, an 80 year old man from Mampong who offered us to come to his house and take a look at his records which he did not listen to for the past 30 years just because he could not fix his record player. The first time we palyed the record was an unexpected emotional surprise, for him and for us.
