The Goethe-Institut has invited Ebo Taylor and his band for a performance in at the Goethe-Institut in Upanga, Dar es Salaam. With the support of the Goethe-Institut the band will perform on Saturday, Feb 15 at Sauti za Busara 2014.
Born in 1936, guitarist, composer, arranger, bandleader, and producer Ebo Taylor has been a vital figure on the Ghanaian music scene for over six decades. In the late '50s he was active in the influential highlife bands the Stargazers and the Broadway Dance Band, and in 1962 he took his own group, the Black Star Highlife Band, to London, which led to collaborations with Fela Kuti and other African musicians in Britain at the time.
Returning to Ghana, he worked as a producer, crafting recordings for others, as well as exploring his own projects, combining traditional Ghanaian material with Afro-beat, jazz, and funk rhythms to create his own recognizable sound in the '70s. Taylor's work became popular internationally with hip-hop producers in the 21st century, which led to the release of Love and Death on Strut Records in 2010, his first internationally distributed album.
Its success prompted Strut to issue the stellar retrospective Life Stories: Highlife & Afrobeat Classics 1973-1980, in the spring of 2011. A year later, in 2012, a third Strut album, the deeply personal Appia Kwa Bridge, appeared, and showed that at 76, Taylor was still intensely creative and focused, mixing traditional Fante songs and chants with children's rhymes and personal matters into his own sharp vision of highlife.

Tarehe 14, Februari, 2014, saa 12 jioni, Dar es Salaam itajiunga na wanaharakati duniani kote kwa ajili ya One Billion Rising, harakati za wahamasishaji kimataifa kukomesha ukatili dhidi ya wanawake na wasichana. One Billion Rising ilianza kama wito wa kuchukua hatua kutokana na takwimu ya kushtua kwamba mwanamke 1 kati ya 3 duniani atapigwa au kubakwa wakati wa uhai wake. Kwa kuwa idadi ya watu duniani imefikia bilioni 7, hii inamaanisha zaidi ya wanawake na wasichana bilioni moja.
Kutakuwa na muziki na kucheza, hivyo tunawaalika wake kwa waume kuja kujumuika nasi na kuamka na kuinuka pamoja kukemea ukatili dhidi ya wanawake.
On February 14, 2014, at 6 pm, Dar es Salaam will join with activists around the world for One Billion Rising, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. One Billion Rising began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls.
There will be dancing and music, and we invite our sisters and brothers to join us in rising up against violence towards women. Community members, especially men, will be encouraged to become active bystanders against GBV and embrace positive masculinity.
