The Nigerian Brothers

West African
Bay Music and Entertainment performer The Nigerian Brothers

The Nigerian Brothers put together their memories of traditional West African folk music, ‘palm-wine’ tunes, and highlife songs, bringing them to life with their harmonious voices, African guitar stylings and hand percussion instruments.

Together they recreate the sweet, lilting sounds of their earliest village memories. This gentle but rhythmic music is a special treat for those who seek an authentic African sound.

“Nigerian Highlife music was originally created by those who wanted to rise above the pain and suffering… to transcend all evils.” — Ken Okulolo

The Nigerian Brothers perform as a trio consisting of two acoustic guitars with hand drums. They can add additional members if needed.

Duo: two guitars or one guitar and hand drum with vocals. The group performs beautifully without amplification.
