Introducing emerging singer, songwriter and musician of Nigerian, Ghanaian and Burkina Faso descent, KANKARA with his infectious new single titled ‘We Higher’. With over 16,000 streams on Soundcloud and early support from the likes of Moses Stone from NBC’s The Voice and Mix Masta Garzy, who has worked with Burna Boy, AKA, Stonebwoy, Iyanya, R2Bees, Terry G and Patoranking among others, ‘We Higher’ is fast growing into an underground hit online.
Taking inspiration from the many struggles that young Africans face today, with Kankara trying to bring hope to many on the continent, and encourage them to keep going forward, ‘We Higher’ chronicles Kankara’s own difficult journey, from growing up in Northern Ghana, to studying in the UK and now fulfilling his dreams as a musician trying to put his homeland on the map – with the central message that no matter what, we go higher.
Making excellent use of his multi-ethnicity and fusion of several different cultures and African music sub-genres, ‘We Higher’ is an undeniable opus, which sees Kankara creating a unique listening experience for fans and critics alike, which is very different from what the current Afrobeats music landscape has to offer. Stream and enjoy ‘We Higher’ below and look out for more excellent music from Kankara before the year comes to an end, as he starts to leave an indelible mark on the scene.
