Has this bit of news been posted here yet? I just spotted it while restoring my bookmarks:

"Beginning in October, Awesome Tapes From Africa will be making available for sale some of the wonderful and obscure recordings that have been so fun to share over the years. In collaboration with the artists, who will receive 50% of all proceeds after expenses, you will soon find at your local music shop vinyl LPs, CDs and mp3s of select sublime albums, the kind which have made doing this blog so easy."

Their (his? its?) first release will be Nahawa Doumbia's debut release from 1983.

"More Info soon." Sounds rather promising...

Nahawa's great & a lot of her music is hard to find, so this is good news.

She looks so young on this first album they're releasing. Thanks for the info Kari

Great news for my ears, bad news for my bank balance.
