The MOGA Highlife Half-Hour

controls Filter
This show will showcase the best in dance-band Highlife, a sound that originated in Ghana and spread to a number of neighbouring countries. The popular sound cemented itself in the late 1950's as the country's national music, later proclaimed so by Nkrumah himself. During the golden era (60's and early 70's), mainly on a Saturday night, the genre's biggest names could be seen performing at one of Accra's many popular nightclubs.
