ABOUT
The Bigshots Band was originally formed in 2008 and came to its present line-up five (5) years ago. One of the core objectives of the band is to research into Ghanaian folksongs, nursery rhymes, children rhythmic games and play songs, and re-arrange them so as to bring them to international repute. The band revives the Highlife and Afrojazz feel in Ghana's popular music by creatively drawing on an immense musical tradition of Highlife greats, Ghana'a and West Africas's Highlife and Afrobeat music. They do this with an elaborate approach to musical technique, playfulness, arrangement, sound and performance. In more than ten (10) years live playing in Ghana, the band has started to contribute its own style to contemporary African popular music and 'world music'.
