  Ghana Highlife Music
Book
 
  Wonderfully comprehensive book on modern music from Ghana. Written by Kwesi Owusu & Florent Mazzoleni (who works for our own Kindred Spirits recordings aswell). The book tells the story of the early Ghana Highlife sound of the late 50's through to the 80's. An essential read for anybody interested in African music. (Please note : written in both English & French).

Ghana High-Life Music” tells the story of how high-life music ruled from the late 1950's to the early 1980's, these Golden ages when high-life music became Ghana's foremost cultural movement, vibrant, rich and passionate.

Written by Florent Mazzoleni, Kwesi Owusu, and enriched with contributions by Ethnomusicolgist Markus Coester, this unprecedented book displays unseen pictures and reproductions of rare records covers. It unveils the most famous musicians and recording industry from the Independence years to more troubled times.

The project is commissioned by the Institut Français du Ghana as part of its support to the valorisation of the rich Music Heritage in Ghana and the musical scene with the annual High Vibes Festival.

With contributions by well known Ghanaian artists like CK Mann, Gyedu Blay Ambolley, A.K. Yeboah & Ebo Taylor...
