Liberia

Ravaged of late by war..... Liberia ....like Sierra Leone ....has developed rapidly ...with musical styles that arrived from Ghana and Nigeria 30-40 years ago. These have now fused with modern variations such as Highlife. This of course is similar to the Jamaican style that some call Highlife...others.... Minto...or Ska. All of this music has now evolved into an anthemic explosion of youth culture....called HIPCO...!!  Rap...Pop.... and even Christian Church music can all be heard in this great melange...this Jahass of musical styles!

HipCo is the Liberian equivalent of Jamaican Reggae. An evolved  mix of all of the music that reached Liberia from Sierra Leone....with its strong Caribbean influence....and the music of African ethnic groups that arrived..... from Nigeria and Ghana!
