AllMusic Review by

While the great Ghanaian dance bands had the spotlight in the ‘50s and ‘60s, the guitar strain of highlife was also coming to fruition. Mixing jazz, rock and local guitar styles with Afro-Cuban rhythms, King Onyina, Akwaboa Oppong and their ilk created a highly local, yet quite cosmopolitan music that eventually took over center stage.
