Percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah was born as Remi Kabaka, but is mostly just called Rebop.
A native of Lagos, Nigeria, Baah moved to England in the '60s. He was living in Sweden in 1971 when Steve Winwood invited him to record and tour with self-indulgent 70s prog-rock act Traffic.
Baah joined Traffic in 1971, playing alongside drummers Jim Capaldi, Jim Gordon and Roger Hawkins.
On October 3, 1973 Rebop Kwaku Baah was released from jail; he had been there a month after attacking 2 policemen in London. He was also fined 20 pounds for biting a cab driver's ear.
In 1974 Rebop Kwaku Baah parted ways with Traffic.
Although Rebop Kwaku Baah remained with the group for the remainder of the '70s, he balanced his involvement with solo projects.
His debut solo effort "Reebop", recorded with Swedish musicians and released in 1972, was followed by "Anthony Reebop Kwaku Baah" in 1973 and "Trance" in 1977. His final album, "Melodies in a Jungle Man's Head", released in 1989, was left unfinished.
In addition to his work with Traffic, Baah contributed to albums by Winwood, the Rolling Stones, and Ginger Baker.
