56-year-old percussionist Lekan Babalola has not one, but two Grammys. His first Grammy came in 2006 for his work on the album In the heart of the moon by legendary Malian guitarist.

Ali Farka Toure and Babalola got his second Grammy Award in 2009 for being on Cassandra Wilson‘s album Lovely.
The England based percussionist is married with three children to a jazz musician, Kate Luxmoore, who he regards as a greater musician than he himself.
