Highlife Saturday Night captures the vibrancy of Saturday nights in Ghana--when musicians took to the stage and dancers took to the floor--in this penetrating look at musical leisure during a time of social, political, and cultural change. FramingMoreHighlife Saturday Night captures the vibrancy of Saturday nights in Ghana--when musicians took to the stage and dancers took to the floor--in this penetrating look at musical leisure during a time of social, political, and cultural change. Framing dance band highlife music as a central medium through which Ghanaians negotiated gendered and generational social relations, Nate Plageman shows how popular music was central to the rhythm of daily life in a West African nation.

He traces the history of highlife in urban Ghana during much of the 20th century and documents a range of figures that fueled the musics emergence, evolution, and explosive popularity. This book is generously enhanced by audiovisual material on the Ethnomusicology Multimedia website.
