West African Highlife Band

When: Sat., April 15, 9 p.m. 2017

Launched by Kotoja’s Babá Ken Okulolo, the West African Highlife Band was born from a request by the late founder of Ashkenaz, David Nadel, for a band to concentrate on Ghanaian and West African highlife dance music and rhythmic styles. With master musicians from several West African countries and the United States, the band draws on folk traditions combined with modern stylistic elements, played with acoustic and electric instruments, and revives classic highlife dance hits of Ghana and Nigeria.
