“REMIXING AFRICAN ORAL HISTORY”

2011/05/03

>>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.

“Global Voices” published a Review on the “trailers for a road movie”-project in December 2010. Deepdish “Waves of Change” also featured the trailers.

You Can Explore & Use the Archived Audio:

Original recordings re-mixed in the audio tracks of the trailers can be accessed, downloaded & used under creative commons share-alike license. They are archived as part of an on-going conversational journey to “Africa” & audio media road workshop across the continent.

The audio playlists on www.archive.org are meant to introduce artists & organisations and the cultural, activist and socio political scenes as encountered by radio continental drift at the time.

We hope that their slow broadcast from the archives may already reach open ears & join like minds, while more complete sets of recordings are still being edited & uploaded.

Your comments & questions will feed the fire. Re-broadcasts & re-mixes can become a starting point for further audio correspondence. Do get in touch if our words & songs strike a common cord.

Thank you for listening!
