Stadium Hotel – Nigeria

“Highlife, a West African musical form which had been developing since the early twentieth century, was at its peak in the 1960s. In the years that followed Independence, a young generation of musicians played in clubs across Lagos, releasing a steady stream of records which mixed Highlife with new influences from around the world.

“By the end of the following decade, a devastating civil war coupled with the impact of successive military coups had dealt a heavy blow to the music industry which these artists had helped build. Drawing on the memories of these musicians and the words of those who have lived and worked around them, this film reflects upon their legacy.”
