USER-SUBMITTED INFORMATION
Ebo Taylor & Afrobeat Academy/Ghana/

Born in 1936, guitarist, composer, arranger, bandleader, and producer Ebo Taylor has been a central figure of the Ghanaian music scene for over six decades.

In the late 50's he was active in the influential Highlife bands the Stargazers and the Broadway Dance Band, and in 1962 he took his own group, the Black Star Highlife Band, to London, which led to collaborations with Fela Kuti and other African musicians in Britain at the time.

Taylor's work became popular internationally with Hiphop producers in the 21st century, which led to the release of Love and Death on Strut Records in 2010, his first internationally distributed album. Its success prompted Strut to issue the stellar retrospective Life Stories: Highlife & Afrobeat Classics 1973-1980, in the spring of 2011.

In may 2012, a third Strut album, the deeply personal Appia Kwa Bridge, appeared. It proofs that at 76, Taylor is still intensely creative and focused, mixing traditional Fante songs and chants with children's rhymes and personal matters into his own sharp vision of Highlife.
