    Synopsis
    A FILMIC DISCOVERY OF AN UNKNOWN PART OF POP MUSIC HISTORY
    by Wilma Kiener, Dieter Matzka and Alpha Yahaya Suberu

    Highlife Music of Ghana has proven to be one of Africa’s most popular and potent form of music. Highlife can be considered as a fusion of indigenous dance
    rhythms and melodies with western influences including regimental music, sea shanties and church hymns, which first emerged in the coastal towns of Ghana in the early years of the twentieth century.
    Since the end of the Seventies Burger Highlife has been the traditional music which keeps the people in parts of West Africa from morning until late after midnight in movement and tune. Created by Ghanaian musicians mainly in Germany, Burger Highlife found its way back to its origins in West Africa.
    Burger Highlife will offers a wonderful example of the benefits of cross cultural exchanges between Africa and Europe. The film follows the surprising evolution of the diverse styles with respect to the history of West Africa. It is fascinating to note that Africans have not been confronted with a one way influence that eventually destroys their old traditional music. On the contrary, Burger Highlife is the epitome of the African point of view of encountering the foreign world.
    The film Burger Highlife - Explosion, is promising swing, entertainment, emotion, pleasure and also a kind of education about a shared culture and entangled history.
    A good film should have a message. The message Burger Highlife - Explosion seeks to give is: “COME TO AFRICA“ like in a Burger Highlife song composed and performed by George Darko with the same tiltle. And we meet other Burger Highlife stars like Lee Dodou, Pat Thomas, Bob Fiscian, Albert Jones, McGod, Nana Aboagye Da-Costa, Daddy Lumba, Nana Acheampong, Nana Asamoah, John Collins ...
