I am very grateful to the team at Afropop Worldwide to have had the opportunity to co-produce a program for their show. I’ve spent many hours over the years listening to their programs and it has been a pleasure to be able to work with them.
“Saving the Malawi Tapes” tells the story of how the old reel to reel tapes that lay in disarray inside the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation were digitised.
This is thanks to the collaboration of Malawian musician, producer and presenter of radio and TV shows, Waliko Makhala and the Norwegian radio journalist and music producer, Sigbjørn Nedland.
Listeners will also hear more about the work AfricanPoems is doing to share these musical and poetic treasures with a wider audience.
