Product Description:
Africa Come Back: The Popular Music of West Africa Video(VHS/DVD). Just as Africa has impacted the music of the Caribbean and the Americas, so has the New World reciprocated, strongly influencing the music of Africa. This program documents the history of the musical genre known as hi-life, from the sweet and melancholy sounds of palm wine guitar, to the plangent harmonies of nnwonkoro and the fierce polyrhythms of kpanlogo, to hi-life’s contemporary place in world music. Performers include Koo Nimo, Segun Adewale and His Superstars International, Adinkra, Nana Ampadu and the African Brothers, Frankie Lane and Gifty Collins, and the Sunsum Band. (60 minutes)
