West Africa has a long-standing tradition of traveling storytellers known as Griots, who combine poetry, music, and oral history. In Ghana, a group of young Africans are continuing this legacy and here Hip-Hop music has merged with High-Life, the traditional music of West Africa, and this fusion has led to the birth of a new musical genre called HipLife.
