Product description

Product Description

Highlife music conjures up images of African nightclubs, shiny dance-floors, champagne, fine clothes and the spirit of hope & expectation that marked the end of the Colonial era. The heyday of highlife was in the 1960s and 1970s and the name describes and defines the popular guitar-led dance music of West Africa, primarily from Ghana and Nigeria. The Rough Guide to Highlife surveys this vibrant scene, featuring classic tracks of the era and the biggest artists within the genre.
