Ace high life musician Pat Thomas and the Kwasibu Area Band were among a selected few from Africa who participated in this year’s World of Music, Arts and Dance Festival held on the 29th of July 2016 in the United Kingdom.

The international arts festival which celebrates the world’s many forms of music, arts and dance had an eclectic lineup of 90 artists from 49 countries including everything from elderly Vietnamese singers to brass bands.

According to the Guardian, there was an impressive return from Baaba Maal, who ended by adding vocal accompaniment to a dramatic performance from the poet Lemn Sissay. The best dance music came from the Ghanaian veteran Pat Thomas mixing Highlife with reminders of 1980s Accra disco, and from that exhilarating Congolese band Konono No 1.
