A closer look at From Highlife to Afrobeats: A Musical Exploration

Here's What We'll Be Doing

  1. Go deep behind an arts and crafts market to find a hidden record shop that has preserved vinyl's from Ghana's golden age.
  2. Palm wine is an alcoholic drink made from fermented palm sap. In Ghana it's more like a national treasure. You'll take a break from diggin through the crates (literally) and try some of your curator's favorite flavors.
  3. Before you continue with your experience, it'll be crucial to have a bite. The rest of your time will include dancing and cocktails so it's best to coat your belly beforehand.
  4. Now that you're warmed up to the vibe, prepare to jam your evening away at an Afrobeats party in town.

Sharifah seemed to know every nook and cranny of the market. I wouldn't have discovered the spots she took us too on our own. Seeing the records felt like a different kind of history tour and the songs were such a vibe. Amazing piece of history.
