Held at the well known Nubuke Foundation Garden, the night will showcase neo-traditional music from Dela Botri and Hewale Soundz followed by a dance session to the best Ghanaian music from the 70s played strictly on vinyl carefully selected from the vinly collection of Volta45.

The late 60s and 70s in Ghana was and always will be considered The Golden Age of Ghanaian Music; this period laid the foundation for the explosion of the distinctive Afro sound and the emergence of bands and musicians like Hedzoleh sounds, Pagadeja, Boombaya, Ebo Taylor, Fela Kuti, Gydeu Blay Ambolley to name a few.

Post Independent Ghana and the new found sense of national identity created the perfect atmosphere for musical creativity and artistic innovation.

It was the Era of real bands and real musicians. Records released on vinyl during that era still continue to shape the music we hear today.
