Welcome to the Radio Tanzania Facebook page, brought to you by the Tanzania Heritage Project. We need your help to save the priceless Radio Tanzania music archives in Dar-es-Salaam. Join us!
MisiónThe Radio Tanzania Dar-es-Salaam archives contain over 100,000 hours of priceless Tanzanian music on damaged and deteriorating reel-to-reel tapes, and they need our help. This site was created to raise awareness and support for our project to SAVE and to SHARE the Radio Tanzania archives. To do this, we will preserve, digitize, and restore this collection and make it available to the world through mp3 downloads, a 'best of' compilation CD, and a documentary film.
DescripciónHow would you feel if you discovered an historic collection of African music, forgotten by the world for decades? And what would you do if you learned that it was in danger of being lost forever?
The music in the archives is an extensive mix of Afro-jazz and rhumba, dance music, Arabic "taarab" (sung Swahili poetry), and much more. This music reflects the spirit of a nation determined to promote peace, pride, and national unity after many years of colonial oppression.
