Music in Tanzania
The History of Tanzania's Music Economy
Live from Bongoland: The History of Tanzania's Music Economy
Presented by Afropop Worldwide
In the '70s and '80s, the East African nation of Tanzania was home to one of the continent's greatest music scenes. But you wouldn't know from the recorded evidence. Join us for this Hip Deep edition of Afropop Worldwide, as we explore how Tanzania developed a booming music economy without any music industry (and yes--we'll explain what that means) and then how, in the course of a single decade, it developed one of the premier recording industries on the continent. Featuring Bryant University professor Alex Perullo and veteran guitarist John Kitime. Produced by Sam Backer.
