On March 6, 1971 some of the biggest Soul, R&B, Jazz and Gospel acts of the day played a 14 hour concert in Accra, Ghana, celebrating its 14th anniversary of independence. Performers included Wilson Pickett, Ike & Tina Turner, Santana, Roberta Flack, Les McCann, The Staple Singers, Willie Bobo and Eddie Harris. This was captured on film and subsequently released as Soul to Soul; a documentary of the concert intercut with footage of the performers rediscovering their roots and heritage.
