Ebo Taylor has been a major figure in the Ghanian music scene for over six decades, most notably as a founding father of the highlife genre intrinsic with Ghanian music. Highlife uses the main rhythmic structures of traditional Akan music but is played with Western instruments. Highlife is defined by jazzy horns and multiple guitars which lead the band.
Ebo Taylor and the Pelikans shows the legendary musician, producer, composer and arranger joining forces with 12-piece Cape Coast Ghanian band ‘The Pelikans’ led by Bessa Simmona with rhythm guitarist Fifi Orleans Lindsay. For fans of the genre, collectors, or those simply looking to broaden their horizons this LP is a must.
