What more could you want now the arctic conditions have at long last been banished (from London at least) than a mix tape jam packed full of Tanzanian big-band ‘musiki wa dansi’ (‘dance music’).
Put together for Okay Africa’s ‘Africa In Your Earbuds‘ series by ‘Radio Tanzania‘ , the mix comprises mainly of 7″s’ found in a Dar-es-Salaam record shop. You can read more about the Radio Tanzania project here, or if you aren’t up for tackling that check out the video below. There is also some background behind the mix itself (and the digging involved) here, which is an essential (and fairly brief) read.
