Santrofi (GH) // Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022

World-class highlife from Ghanaian all-star orchestra

Santrofi created a highlife blast at Roskilde Festival and ALICE in 2019. Led by Emmanuel Ofori (Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band) the Ghanaian all-star orchestra will return to Denmark this Summer, playing at Onkel Dannys Plads as a part of Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

Please note: the concert takes place at the outdoor stage at Onkel Dannys Plads

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. The band is led by bassist and producer Emmanuel Ofori, who rose from the immutable Ebo Taylor, and Pat Thomas and Kwashibu Area Band who we’ve been so lucky to host at ALICE. With Santrofi, Ofori has formed his own collective deeply informed by vintage Ghanaian highlife music in all its forms – from the smelting soulful highlife sound 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. But still with a young and fresh vibe to it, and an amazing liveshow.

Santrofi created an ecstatic highlife party at Roskilde Festival and ALICE in 2019. Now they are finally coming back on Danish ground, bringing their well received debut album “Alewa” (2020) and playing at Onkel Dannys Plads as a part of Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022.

Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2022 takes place from June 24 – July 10 at 120 venues. See the full line-up at
