Country Music in Ghana
Ghana is a country where music is playing everywhere. Popular styles include High Life, Hip Life, R & B, Reggae, Gospel, and surprisingly Country. When my department chair picked me up at the airport the radio in the van was tuned to a Country station. I asked him if this style of music was popular in Ghana and he said that it was. I have noticed many times eating at Taco Bell that the music playing was American Country. I expected the other styles of music listed above, but Country was not a musical genre I would have ever associated with Africa.
