The Cavemen herald their album with the release of high-life inspired “Anita”
Nigeria’s highlife band is proud to announce the release of ‘Anita,’ the latest single from their upcoming album ROOTS. An exercise in the musical expression of joy, ‘Anita’ is a burst of sunlight delivering the patented feel-good vibes that the band infuses throughout their music.
As highly skilled musicians and lovers of enjoyment, The Cavemen have been able to create extremely rich and layered songs that transport listeners to a place where worries and stress cease to exist. Starting with jaunty guitars, rattles, and drums, the stage is set for an upbeat affair as singer Benjamin approximates a near-falsetto, singing on what he needs in order to marry the woman he loves.

The Cavemen’s love for highlife music and life itself remains the driving force behind their music. ‘Anita’ is both a display of superb musicianship and an infinite bundle of joy, guaranteed to warm your heart and swing your waist.
