Unlabelled #2: Awesome Tapes From Africa

Tuesday 3rd November / presented by Coel Healy

Unlabelled is a monthly exploration of some of the world’s most culturally significant music labels. Beyond just releasing music, labels play an important part in the collection and curation of music. Labels are often key in finding, reissuing and preserving music that would otherwise be lost in the endless sea of new releases.

On this edition of Unlabelled, Coel Healy talks to Brian Shimkovitz about his blog and label Awesome Tapes From Africa. Awesome Tapes is a repository of mostly obscure tapes found during Brian's travels through Africa, it features music from Ghana, Ethiopia, Nigeria and more. Awesome Tapes catalogues and reissues music in a way that embraces the internet, globalisation and the underground all at the same time.
