Elephant Gin presents the Hilife Allstars

A night celebrating the music of West Africa sipped to Elephant Gin, a spirit that takes rare African ingredients as some of its fourteen botanicals to create a distinctive flavour that was awarded Spirit of the Year 2016. The company also gives back to African wildlife by donating 15% of its proceeds to two Elephant foundations in Africa. 

The Hilife Allstars are a collective of the cream of UK-based West African musicians who have recently come together to play some of the classic repertoire of the past 70 years of the hilife genre, plus their own originals in this style. Featured musicians include Nana Tsiboe, 
the amazing vocalist and percussionist who has played with everyone from Ali Farka Toure to Marvin Gaye; Adesos Wallace, the imposing veteran pan-African vocalist and drummer with roots in Ghana, Sierra Leone and Nigeria; Kodjovi Kush, bass player, vocalist from Togo; Phil Dawson, a British guitar player who has worked with the top artists from all corners of Africa.
