Biography

Ebo Taylor (Cape Coast, Ghana, January 7, 1936) is a highlife 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 Pat Thomas, C.K. Mann, and 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.
