>>The DURBAN SINGS rough radio mix 

was release on Gruenrecorder label in December 2010; a movie trailer hosting the work followed in January. The trailer is packaged in an article  Creative Africa Network – REMIXING AFRICAN ORAL HISTORY on Creative Africa Network where a re-mix tree provides access to the work’s multiple contributions celebrating the pioneering achievements of the DURBAN SINGS project and the people who continue to further the production of its vision.
