Guitar Walter Miller 6. Liner Notes Kenneth S. Goldstein, Saka Acquaye. Saka Acquaye And His African Ensemble From Ghana. Voices Of Africa: High-Life And Other Popular Music LP, Album. Polydor, Polydor. In this album, Saka Acquaye and his African Ensemble present a small sampling of the fascinating music of modern Africa. This is not an ethnic recording rather, a unique opportunity to hear the popular, dance hall, and concert music of Africa today. Imagine yourself in one of the many nightclubs or dance halls of Accra, capital of Ghana. Nowhere is this more evident than in their music. Even their term for good-time music high life is indicative of this ability to laugh after a hard days labor. Their songs are full of their philosophy about life and a way of living. Saka Acquaye.
