West Africa's finest
Ghana's Groove: The History of Highlife

Thursday 3rd February

Afla Sackey & his band Afrik Bawantu return to The Jazz Cafe with their high-octane celebration of one of the most joyful sounds in musical existence – Highlife.

Expect classics from the history of the genre by the likes of Eko Roosevelt, K Frimpong and the great Ebo Taylor alongside originals from Afrik Bawantu.

Afrik Bawantu’s original compositions blend highlife from West African percussion and Western funk-rock genres, enhancing the cross-cultural collaboration. The uplifting rhythm section in harmony with roaring brass accompanied by high-powered bass lines creates a powerful Afro-Funk sound with an energy that drives audiences to the dance floors.

Their music is about unity and togetherness – a message we all need to hear and experience live at the moment.
