Highlife is the cornerstone of Ghanaian music. And although for some, Highlife is seen as the music of the past, it is very much Ghana’s present and future.

Join Bernard Johnson-Tackie, creative director of The Goldenstool Project and Abena Serwaa founder of AKADi as they explore the origins of Ghana’s iconic sound in a five-part series called: ‘Highlife Music Deconstructed’.

First episode on Sunday 20th September 2020 from 5pm U.K. time (4pm Ghana time).

Join us on Facebook Live on either @akadimag and @thegoldenstoolproject

I'm so excited about this series! Highlife is part of the fabric of music that has shaped me since I was a baby. I have fond moments of dancing around the family house to Sweet Talks and Alex Konadu. Without Highlife there wouldn't be a lot of modern artists around today. Long live Highlife!
