As recorded music developed in the early part of the 20th century, there was more and more pressure to capitalise on indigenous music in Africa, Asia, South America and the Caribbean. This was not some sort of altruistic preservation exercise that the commercial record companies were engaged in. They saw a market and wanted to exploit it, selling the records in the countries where the music originated. On the East African coast, site of the present day Tanzania and Kenya, there was a ''gold rush

Zawose can perform magic with his voice. He and his son--armed only with voices, thumb pianos, a Tanzanian violin, and ankle bells--create a landscape that takes you far away from the wherever you reside. So you don't understand a word? Who cares? The meaning and joy seep into your mind. This is music for the love of making music--something we seem to have largely forgotten in the rush of industry, biz, and hype. This is simply beauty on a stick. And it doesn't hurt that Zawose has one of the wo

Remmy Ongala is a household name in Tanzania, and his fame has spread worldwide with Songs for the Poorman. Born in Eastern Zaire (Congo), he was once a member of Kenya's fabled Orchestre Makassy, and his own sound is a blend of Congolese soukous with the lighter, funkier sounds of Kenya and Tanzania. Ringing guitar lines and loping bass lines counterpoint Ongala's soulful vocals on eight songs concerning serious topics such as poverty, injustice, death, and, of course, human passion. Both dance

The craze for dance music began in Tanzania in the early 30s. Cuban rumba records were all the rage and the urban youth organized themselves into 'dance clubs' like the Dar Es-Salaam Jazz Band founded in 1932. The earliest instrumentation added brass instruments to local drums. Strings followed: violins, banjos, mandolins and guitars. The recordings in this collection date from 1968 to 1973.Shrink-wrapped.
