Ghanian HighLife is often called "the happiest sound" and this African music compilation is an excellent introduction to the joyous sounds of HighLife being created in Ghana today. Th vocal- and guitar-driven tracks on this album are joyfully infused with elements of swing, jazz, and Cuban rhythms. Similar to the popular HighLife style of the 60s, Sankofa is full of bouncing brass with the upbeat guitar styles of West Africa.
You'll be treated to a sampling of five different bands, including Alex Konadu's International Band and Prince Osei Kofi and His African Heroes. A perfect album to get happy to!
