Entre grooves dansants et transes envoûtantes, le duo afro-folk Kolinga nous embarque dans une spirale musicale à la fois tendre et puissante. La 'Black Music' retrouve ses origines africaines tout en empruntant le chemin de la modernité. Kolinga défend une musique avant tout ressentie, à portée universelle, enrichie chaque jour par un public grandissant et désireux de partager les valeurs transmises dans leurs textes.


Kyekyeku is seen as a new generation of young lively Ghanaian musicians that is combining musical traditions from roots Palmwine (A style of Ghanaian folk) Hilife and Afrobeat; performing live in new and exciting sounds. Kyekyeku creates a unique high-energy sound mixed in with Highlife and Afrofunk of fellow countrymen Ebo Taylor and Pat Thomas erupting in a pulsationg Afro-urban musical broth.

With lyrics reminiscent of village recreational songs, protest songs, love poetry and old African spirituality, his music touches on themes concerned with the well-being of Africa and the world society. Kyekyeku escorts you on a soulful journey to the enchanting lands of West Africa in a Palmwine meets-Highlife-meets-World Grooves fun moment!

The young Ghanaian musician has collaborated with world-renowned musicians including Koo Nimo (GH), Peter White (UK/Jazz), Pat Thomas(GH), Ambolley(GH) Thais Morel (Brazil), Mayra Andrade (Cape Verde), Blick Bassy (Cameroun) etc.

Described by CNN as 'Wizard of the Guitar' Kyekyeku carries a sound draped in silky acoustic guitars, intricate percussive grooves and lush horns, locked between folk and a throbbing city Highlife beat.

Kyekyeku & Ghanalogue Highlife brings back deep warm grooves reminiscent of when folk Ghanaian musicians first plugged in and went electric, creating tons of delightful music filled with thrilling guitar lines, soaring farfisa organs, reliably solid bass motifs and drums, all punctuated by punchy horns to create a full sound popularly known in Ghana as Highlife music (a generic name for Ghanaian music built around folk styles mixed with Funk, Soul and Jazz birthing Afrobeat and Afrofunk).
This project proudly reintroducing vintage Highlife music from the late 70s - 90s and linking that to recent Afro-urban music. Kyekyeku; leader of the project says ''our need to make this music again stems from the discontinuity and gap created between the previous and modern eras largely due to coups d'etats, curfews, religious transitions and mass exodus of musicians abroad''. Kyekyeku & Ghanalogue Highlife thus re-establishes the link and evolution to modern urban highlife music; madly loved in Ghana
