African Blues

The South African Sunday Times carried a fascinating report on the state of African music. It dealt with the current lack of support and protection available to artists and described a new study on how the success of American country music could serve as example of how to remedy this. The Times report is available here: http://www.thetimes.co.za/Business/BusinessTimes/Article1.aspx?id=904457
and the study ‘Nashville in Africa’ by Mark Schultz and Alec van Gelder can be read here:
