After decades of booking his own bands, Matthew, the founder and main force behind the label has begun a new endeavor.  Rare Books will initially focus on booking master musician SK Kakraba, who is originally from Ghana and currently resides in Los Angeles.  SK plays the gyil, a wooden xylophone from northern Ghana. He is one of he world's best known masters of the instrument which he has learned since early childhood.  He performs both solo and with a full band depending on the context or situation.
