At no less than 87 years of age, co-founder of Ghanaian highlife Ebo Taylor possesses a veritably encyclopaedic knowledge of African music. As an artist, arranger, musician and producer, he had a hand in creating some of the greatest funk songs ever recorded, while his genius as an arranger helped to define the signature sound of highlife and afrobeat. In 2018, he released the album Yen Ara to mark the 60th anniversary of his music career. His current band is led by son Henry on keyboard and lead vocals, alongside William Taylor on bass and Roy X Taylor on vocals, percussion and guitar.
