Highlife Force Santrofi Kickstarts European Tour With Yaw TOG & AK Yeboah

After months of performing and collaborating with Highlife legends such as AB Crentsil and AK Yeboah, jamming with musicians like Afrobeats newcomer Camidoh, superstar Black Sherif and Kumasi trap sensation Yaw Tog, Santrofi has announced the second phase of Deep into Highlife Project. 

The tour will take off end of May: Finally, Deep into Highlife is coming to Germany …   

The final lineup for the ‚Deep into Highlife tour 2022‘ through Germany: Santrofi will be accompanied by very special guests Yaw Tog and AK Yeboah. 

The band will be opening their Europe tour in 2022 with seven very special concerts in Germany presenting half a year of work put into the Deep into Highlife project. They recorded dozens of songs with the Highlife legends AB Crentsil (Sweet talks) and AK Yeboah (KK’s No2 band). Together they played two shows with these pioneers at Zen Garden and +233 in Accra. But Santrofi also jammed and shared the stage with Ghana’s current No1 Black Sherif, Afrobeats superstar Camidoh and one of the young game-changers on the Ghanaian music scene trap singer Yaw Tog. 

Santrofi and Yaw Tog decided to get together to find a way to fuse his current trap beats with Santrofi’s live band Highlife sound. The two styles blend so well, that Yaw Tog had to be asked to join Santrofi on their Deep into Highlife tour adventure in Germany. This will be Yaw Togs’ first trip to Germany. He is backed by the fresh and soulful sound of Santrofi.

The tour will also showcase sweet & funky Highlifecrooner A.K. Yeboah known for his legendary KK’S No2 band and father of guitar wizard Kwame Yeboah. AK Yeboah started his career as a female voice impersonator in the late 60ies. He soon formed his own band and became one of the most celebrated guitar band Highlifesingers of the 70ies. After the military coup, he recorded several albums in the UK that have become sought after Highlife classics today. Ak Yeboah is in his late 70ies. Highlife is still his life and he is super grateful to present to the world what he loves doing most: playing Highlife. 

Santrofi is a young all-star band from Ghana brimming with gifted musicians. They have played with the kings of highlife such as Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas, Gyedu Blay Ambolley, Osibisa, George Darko but also the young stars of today like Sarkodie and 2 Face Idibia. 

Santrofi’s influences range from the riveting fast-paced pulse of 70s dance-guitar highlife, and the other-worldly sound of Highlife funk to the polyrhythmic beats and melodies that took Afrobeat across the globe.
