Awesome Tapes from Africa
Since I like to incorporate different media in my African Politics class (I usually show a music video in the 5 minutes prior to class as students are walking in), the blog is a treasure trove for me. I particularly appreciate the diversity of styles and representation of African countries.
Here are just two samples:
Prince Khonjo (Kenya), filed by ATfA under bizarre/mind-blowing. Here is the upload to the song, Mambo Poa.
Agele Hot (South Sudan), characterized by ATfA as “light-hearted-sounding danceable jams”: Baba Lo Sunyundro
ATfA announced that starting in October, the site would also begin selling some of the tapes it featured, sharing proceeds with the artists.
