Awesome Tapes From Africa launches record label

August 2, 2011

You may recall that we blogged about Awesome Tapes From Africa back in early 2010.

They release awesome tapes….from Africa.

Well, now head man Brian Shimkovitz is officially launching a record label. The Awesome Tapes From Africa label will release some of the obscure recordings Shimkovitz has featured on his blog in the five years since its inception.

Shimkovitz is working in collaboration with the artists who will receive a 50% cut of profits once expenses are covered. Albums will be released on vinyl, CD and MP3, starting with Malian singer Nâ Hawa Doumbia’s 1982 album, La Grande Cantatrice Malienne Vol 3, scheduled for release 18 October.
