ABOUT US

An Ode to Highlife is a digital archive dedicated to the preservation and re-telling of the rich and diverse history of Highlife Music and its legacy.
 
Highlife is at the heart of what makes Afro-inspired music what it is today. Its impact transcends generations and thus it deserves to be preserved and documented as an integral part of African culture and history.
 
We also believe that in preserving and re-telling our history musically, we can educate, and inspire the younger generations to come, whilst working progressively with the generations that have gone ahead, in adding to the long-lasting recognition Highlife music deserves.
