Ebo Taylor’s Journey Through African Music

Ebo Taylor could almost certainly fill a book talking about his musical history. A close friend of Fela Kuti’s and fellow originator melding African music with sounds coming out of the West, Taylor has collaborated and performed with a connoisseur’s dream list of African musicians, and is responsible for more than his fair share of classics. On the eve of his first internationally distributed solo album, we had a brief chat with the Ghanaian legend about his musical career and some of his favorite collaborators. Look for more video footage coming soon, and make sure to catch Love And Death, recorded with Berlin’s Afrobeat Academy, this October.
