Very proverbial of the new vintage-inspired Highlife, Highlife Funk and Afrobeat, Santrofi is a collective of celebrated young musicians known within Ghana’s music circles. Led by Bassist/ producer Emmanuel Ofori who rose from the immutable Ebo Taylor, and Pat Thomas and Kwashibu Area Band to form his own collective deeply informed by vintage Ghanaian highlife music in all its forms – some largely unknown to the world ranging from the smelting soulful highlife sound that can only be nurtured by Accra’s afternoon scorch, to the riveting fast-paced pulse of 70s dance-guitar highlife, or to the other-worldly sound of Highlife funk, 50s big band highlife or the polyrhythmic beats and melodies that took Afrobeat across the globe. Santrofi created an ecstatic highlife party at this year’s Roskilde Festival. Now they’re ready to do just the same at ALICE!
