Very funky and danceable Highlife. Tunji Oyelana & the Benders were from Lagos and put out a series of records, all of them amazing and a very sophisticated blend of Highlife, Afrobeat and Jazz. The Irokos, Solo Hit and Akaba Man are great examples of the extremely heavy local style from Benin City. The other 5 acts all are from Ghana. Open your mind and hit play. You'll be surprised at how infectious this stuff is.
