Opotopo - Etuk Owo Ikoro Special - Various - Highlife Time (Nigerian & Ghanaian Sound) (CD) Akana Man - Okina Links : vampisoul. Highlife, dance music played mostly in Ghana and Nigeria, represents one of the century's first fusions of African roots and western music, and before it ruled dancefloors across much of West Africa. From its early roots in church music, old African song forms, sea shanties and military brass bands to the orchestra podiums of the slickest nightclubs and concert halls of Lagos and Accra, Highlife has charted the growing confidence of a proud and gifted people casting off the shackles of empire: a people ready to live the High Life.
Accra's E. Victor Olaiya performing to packed dancefloors where, Ikoro Special - Various - Highlife Time (Nigerian & Ghanaian Sound) (CD), unusually for West Africa, ethnicity didn't matter - Igbo people danced with Hausas, and Efik guys with Yoruba women.
West Africa was prosperous, there was work for all - and for several glorious years, Highlife was the soundtrack for the good times. In the tragic Biafran War wrought three years of misery in eastern Nigeria, but soon after Highlife came to the rescue, the 70s music of legends such as Stephen Osita Osadebe helping to heal the scars as only music can. In our collection you'll find all of these Highlife stars and more, from the most celebrated to the obscure one-hit wonders. Not content with just churning out material available from European and Ikoro Special - Various - Highlife Time (Nigerian & Ghanaian Sound) (CD) catalogues, Vampisoul journeyed to Lagos, scoured the record crates, dusted off the forgotten mastertapes and started afresh.
Long live Highlife! Funkenstein himself, you can still grab the free download When I first started listening to African pop music, I tended to make Ikoro Special - Various - Highlife Time (Nigerian & Ghanaian Sound) (CD) lot of assumptions.
One of the most misguided was that I assumed the amount of stuff I'd like would be manageable. I now know how wrong that was-- and that's a positive. I also figured that highlife would be something really distinct, a highly specific sound that was easy to describe. It turns out it's more like rock-- rock music isn't any one thing.
It's more of an umbrella term to blanket a group of related styles, and so it is with highlife as well. As it caught on, it became acquisitive, adding horn arrangements indebted to European dance bands and American jazz, rebuilding first around the electric guitar Ikoro Special - Various - Highlife Time (Nigerian & Ghanaian Sound) (CD) then around synthesizers and drums machines a couple of decades later.
Soundway's second Nigeria Ikoro Special - Various - Highlife Time (Nigerian & Ghanaian Sound) (CD) volume homes in on the early s and gives us a glimpse of what highlife sounded like in Africa's most populous nation during that period.
It attempts to do it all in one disc stuffed with 20 tracks or three LPs with Like 's first volume, it digs deep, touching on artists familiar to those who have kept up with the wave of Afro sound compilations and reissues over the past few years, while locating a huge trove of obscurities.
This is my current favorite collection of '70s Nigerian band music. The sound quality is a little rough, maybe less clear than the three NIGERIA '70s albums, but the musicians are good and the total sound is attractive and a little strange, as if it's drifting in on some magic radio from another time and place/5(15). En esta colección encontrarás todas estas estrellas del Highlife (música de baile interpretada principalmente en Ghana y Nigeria) y más, desde lo más celebrado a las maravillas más oscuras de un sólo éxito.
