About Sacred Funk 4tet play Sounds of High Life
Sounds of High Life explores the sounds of West Africa by reinterpreting songs by High Life musicians such as Ambrose Campbell, E.T. Mensah, and Victor Olaiya.

Highlife is a music genre that started in present day Ghana in the 19th Century, during its history as a colony of the British Empire and through its trade routes in coastal areas. It’s a mix of African polyrhythms with melodies of western jazz, creating feel-good music that influenced the afrobeat and afrobeats that we hear today.

This project is a development of the Tales of Orisa performed by the Sacred Funk 4tet.
