Product Description & Reviews

Classic Highlife music from Ghana recorded 1981-1984 during the country's revolutionary period. The Guitar And Gun was recorded at a time of severe economic austerity that had adversely affected the existence of most recording studios and music clubs, and the purchase of musical instruments. Nevertheless Bokoor Studio kept the show rolling. From the stunning harmonies and rolling percussion of Salaam And His Cultural Imani Group to the skittering guitar wizardry of F. Kenya's Guitar Band you can hear the influences of traditional music, gospel and Western sounds. This timeless music sounds as good today as it did when originally released.
