Hey there. This blog is amazing! I spent all of last night downloading a wide selection of stuff from here and it’s all so good! Any chance you could post that Hip-Dia tape you mentioned awhile back?

Great finds! You should try packaging the tapes in full to make it easier on us, your readers

Nice Tape – especially my little daughter (15 months old loves it!!!), might be the animals you can hear on the tape – thank you for ripping it.

Where can I find Shumba Ratshega’s material? Apparently he has 4 or 5 other albums according to articles on the web, but for years I haven’t been able to find anything but the Makhirikhiri album.
