Hi-Life by Kreativ Haus

Hi-Life is a vibrant and dynamic African music, percussion, and orchestra performance group based in Toronto, Canada. With a rich blend of traditional and contemporary African musical styles, this ensemble has captivated audiences with their electrifying performances that showcase the diverse rhythms, melodies, and cultural heritage of the African continent. The group consists of immigrants with diverse and rich background in various genres of African music. As a way of giving back to the society, we have made it a life to teach this music to young Afro-Canadian immigrants especially those birthed in Canada so as entrench our history in all minds and carry it forward to coming generations.
