This Rough Guide is jam-packed with some of the biggest hitters in highlife history. Enjoy Victor Uwaifo's Nigerian joromi stylings, the gentle Ghanaian palm-wine of Koo Nimo, and even an early recording of Afrobeat superstar Fela Kuti presenting a firmly highlife vibe. Bonus CD: Seprewa Kasa - 'Seprewa Kasa' The seprewa is not called the 'soul of highlife' for nothing - it is likely to be the greatest African instrument you'll ever hear. This fresh and delicate, but seriously endangered, Ghanaian instrument is a cousin to the ever-popular kora from Mali, with a more earthy sound. Three virtuoso musicians (Baffour Kyerematen, Alfred Kari Banaman and Osei Korankye) have shared their ideas and passion to re-explore the traditional sounds of seprewa and origins of highlife in an acoustic contemporary setting, with breathtaking results.
