Hiplife Music in Ghana

 

Hello Everyone!

 

I have been conducting my research on a contemporary form of music originating in Ghana. It is characterized by combining a¬†traditional¬†form of Ghanaian music called “highlife” with Western hip hop. Essentially, it is Ghanaian MC’s rhyming over studio produced beats. It is interesting to study because it shows how the influence of globalization has affected popular culture in Ghana! Here is a hiplife tune that is currently trending on Ghanaian websites. enjoy!!!
