West African Highlife Band
The West African Highlife Band brings together an all-star group of distinguished West African music veterans for a unique celebration of the incomparable West African highlife and 'Palmwine' dance hits of the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
Highlife music ruled the West African club scene before the disco era, and this special band pays tribute to its pioneers, with the lilting harmonies and infectious rhythms that motivated the feet of a generation of African youth. The atmosphere is intense and intoxicating as featured musicians Babá Ken Okulolo, Soji Odukogbe, Rasaki, Aladokun, Lemi Barrow, Pope Flyne, Niiama Hammond, put out their rare and beautiful music.
