This mix is predominantly consists of tunes which I downloaded from the 'Awesome Tapes From Africa' blog about five years ago. The excellent site can be found here http://www.awesometapes.com/
I don't really use the word 'awesome' that much and my soul insists on dieing a little inside when I am bombarded with its overuse( see; banter, legend, genius, gay, OMG, whatever, totally etc. ) don't get me wrong I'm anything but pedantic but that death gives birth to some serious prejudice. However, as far as this blog is concerned its use is cosmically apt, bear in mind the blog would be nothing without this awesome music. This is awesome music and everyone that loves any kind of music should give it a spin. Pay special attention to the sweet melodelic guitars.
