Rehersing nigerian high life

Who knew? But it seems like people are still playing Highlife.

Highlife was the (mostly) before the Nigerian Civil War (Biafra War, late '60s) popular music of Nigeria. I came across a stash of Highlife records in 1975 at a friend's house (a cousin had been in the Peace Corps). I made copies, and I wore that CD out. Pretty catchy stuff, eh?

And people are still playing it! Good deal.
