Palm wine music is a retrospective term for various early twentieth-century music styles that combined local West African instruments with the portable ones of visiting seamen: the concertina, harmonica and particularly
the guitar. It was played in working-class dockside bars and palm wine bars and included different subgenres. Liberian Kru seamen had been working aboard European sailing ships from Napoleonic times and developed the
distinctive West African two-finger plucking guitar technique, which spread along the West African coast from World War I on via Kru-town settlements. It was a Kru who, in the 1920s, taught Ghana’s famous pioneer highlife
guitarist Kwame Asare (aka Jacob Sam), whose Kumasi Trio made the first highlife recordings (including the famous “Yaa Amponsah”) for Zonophone in London in 1928.
