Afla Sackey presents:
Ghana’s Highlife Groove

Ghana’s Highlife Groove
Friday 23rd February 19:00-22:30

Ghana has a proud and long history as one of Africa’s richest musical hotbeds, thanks in part to its inception of ‘highlife’, a genre that originated in the early 20th century.

Characterised by jazzy horns, multiple guitars and an uptempo, synth-driven sound, highlife has been a common feature in the work of seminal artists like Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas and Osibisa.

The Ghanaian Afla Sackey will be leading the show with special guest Huw Bennett (Susso/ Minyanta), a band who specialise in producing rhythm-driven, dance-inducing mix of London’s world music scene, from afrojazz and funk to afrobeat fusion.

Vocals / Percussion : Afla Sackey
Tenor Sax / Flute : Chelsea Carmichael
Trumpet : Johnny Woodham
Trombone : Rosie Turton
Guitar : Tal Janes
Synths : Ben Hayes
Bass / Arrangements : Huw Bennett (Susso/Minyanta)
Drums : Jake Long (Maisha)
