Outhere records goes Ghana. We are proud to announce the beginning of a great adventure in sound that is taking us to Ghana to link up with young Highlife sensation Santrofi. The 8 piece Highlife force will be meeting up with some of the most amazing talents on the Ghana music scene.

Deep into Highlife embrasses Highlife’s past, but is ready to explore the future. On this exciting journey we are joined by our friends from Eiden Music agency and supported by #TURN 2 Take off will be on Sat 13. November at +233 Jazz Bar in Accra with a concert featuring Highlife heavy weight AB Crentsil backed by Santrofi who will set the music of this great Highlife pioneer on fire. This is the first of five concerts exploring Highlife from the funky Era of the 60’s to the disco Highlife of the late 70’s on to Afro-highlife and Afrobeats of today. Highlife has been reinventing itself over the decades in amazing and ever-changing ways. Deep into Highlife seeks to open a new chapter of this story by connecting the past with the future, vintage Highlife with Afrobeats, the pioneers with the producers and the stars of today. Honoring the legends and vibing with today.

From May 2022 till mid of June 2022 the Deep into Highlife project will come to Germany for a 10 day tour playing shows in Hamburg, Berlin, Munich & Cologne, sharing and spreading Highlife in the German music scene.

Santrofi is a collective of celebrated young musicians led by Ebo Taylor and Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area band’s bass player Emmanuel Ofori.

With their first album Alewa they have toured extensively playing shows all over Europe from Roskilde to Amsterdam, from Fusion Festival in Germany to WOMAD in UK.
