Thank you! It would be great to have even more zimbabwean sounds! I already enjoyed John Chibadura and the Tempo Brothers very much.

By the way, what if Shakira’s song This time for Africa will be included here? :-) That was dedicated to Africa during World Cup.

@escalante blogger: Shakira’s World Cup hit actually rips the chorus and melody from a famous Cameroonian song, “Zangaléwa,” by the Golden Sounds. It came out in 1986. There is currently a lawsuit pending against Shakira for use of the song without permission or any offer of royalties to the original band. Hear the original here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFwiWff1hkU

I can’t stop listening to this. Truly incredible.

I broke it up into the different tracks, if anyone wants that – let me know and I’ll send you the link.

Dear ATfA guy,

I love your blog with all my heart. I’ve never had such a good time in my life. This tape is giving me terrible feedback. I suspect it’s digital, but it sounds like it could be an old needle/dusty record. And side one wasn’t playing. Could be me, could be something on your end? Just a heads-up.

Keep up the good work!
