Afro-Palace Live Sessions

ebo_taylor_final_draft.jpg

Ebo Taylor played a pivotal role in shaping Ghana's musical landscape in the 60s and 70s with a style that fused jazz, highlife and funk and which was unique only to him. Like contemporary Afro-beat pioneer Fela Kuti, Ebo left his homeland for London in the mid 60s to attend the Eric Gilder School of Music where both musicians became close friends. As a musician, producer, and arranger his ability to mix traditional African rhythms with Funk and Soul has made his records coveted among African and Afro-beat record collectors worldwide.In 2010 Strut Records signed Ebo Taylor for his first internationally released studio album (Life and Death) to critical acclaim, followed by Apia Kwah Bridge, which features the Afro-beat heavy weights Tony Allen, percussionist Pax Nicholas and guitarist/bassist Oghene Kologbo - all veterans of Fela's Africa 70 band. The decision to record with a Farfisa organ rather than a digital keyboard and on tape instead of computer reinforces that vintage authenticity.
