Nana Tuffour – Sikyi Medley

I’d never heard of the genre ‘Burger Highlife’ until recently.  Burger Highlife is the meeting point between traditional Ghanaian Highlife and 80’s style synths.  This reissue, a joint release from Kalita records and CC:Editions is a good example of this type of music.  Featuring four tracks by Nana Tuffour taken from a couple of his albums.  The first two are taken from the ‘Genesis’ album from 1993, which incidentally can be listened to in full via Spotify.  The other tracks are taken from a later lesser know album, ‘Highlife Tropicana’ from 1997.  Personally I could have done without the last track ‘Jesus’ which hasn’t aged too well, but the rest of the package is pretty solid
