Somandlala Ndebele, one of Diamond Studios' best-selling artists, says he is astonished at how many audio tapes his latest album has sold. Zimbabwe has been on the brink of financial collapse in recent years. Political uncertainty and lack of clarity in the country's financial policies pose major concerns for foreign investors. With inflation and unemployment hitting record highs, many people in the country's cities and townships are too poor to upgrade to CDs or MP3 players.
With little disposable income, opting for a cassette is a matter of value for money for many Zimbabweans. Sibanda says his customers want tapes because they last longer than badly produced pirated CDs, which is all most people can afford. Cassette tapes were first introduced in Their popularity rose in when Sony launched its low-cost, portable "Walkman" players.
Stuck with the soundtrack from a time of prosperity now long gone, the proliferation of the cassette tape in Zimbabwe is just another reminder of how broken the country's economy still is.

It's fitting that this new edition of the Rough Guide to World Music coincides with the start of a new millennium, for it deals with the oldest and newest music in the world - from centuries-old traditions to contemporary fusions.
The Guide sets itself a clearly impossible task: to document and explain the popular, folk and excluding the Western canon classical music traditions around the globe. However, since the first edition appeared in it has been the chief handbook for enthusiasts and become a resource for those working in and around the World Music business itself. In producing a new edition we were aware of omissions and shortcomings in the first edition and we have added many new pieces on countries that weren't covered before - France, Germany, Italy, Iran, Israel, Angola, Mozambique, Burundi and Uganda, to name a handful in this volume.
Other articles were expanded, revised and rewritten; Scandinavia, for example, turned from one piece into five, as did the former Yugoslavia. In addition, the new edition reflects the huge Zimbabwae - Various - High Life Sommer Hits (Cassette) of the whole World Music market over the past five years.
There are more concerts and festivals than ever before - and many would say that there is actually a surfeit of CDs. In preparing this edition, we surveyed the lot, completely overhauling our discographies, adding biographical entries for artists, and reviewing and highlighting the best discs available. Even with two books, each volume has turned out longer than the entire first edition.
The articles - from more than eighty contributors - are designed to provide the background to each country's music styles, explaining how they relate to history, social customs, politics and identity, as well as highlighting the lives and sounds of the singers and musicians. We hope you'll find this enriches the whole experience of listening to World Music. How this book works This volume is divided into three geographical sections: Europe, the Middle Zimbabwae - Various - High Life Sommer Hits (Cassette) and Africa.
Within each section the entries are arranged alphabetically by country or by ethnic group for instance the entries on Gypsy, Jewish Sephardic, Kurdish and Pygmy music. There are running heads and an index to help you find your way.
Our discographies follow the arrangment of each article and when it makes things clearer by style for example, Nigeria has sections for Traditional, Juju, Fuji, Highlife, and Afro-beat. Compilations are listed first and artists follow listed A-Zwith a brief biography and reviews of their key discs.
Each section has one or two 'star discs' which are indicated by a larger than usual CD symbol p. These are the ones to buy first. All other selections are preceded by a CD pcassette A or vinyl V symbol: those specified as cassette or vinyl are not Zimbabwae - Various - High Life Sommer Hits (Cassette) on CD but worth checking out all the same.

Expanded and revised, this is the first volume in a three-volume set, this time around focusing on the music of Africa and the Middle East. Drawing upon a whole host of authors, this work broadens the horizons by looking at every major style of musc in the region, from classical and tribal music, to modern Afro-pop, al-Jeel and Rai sensations.
New and popular generes, such as African rap, Arabesque and Toureg music, are also examined in depth, making this volume much more thorough than it's predecessors.
The book makes a monumental effort to catalouge the best of newer CD releases, including mention of prominent CD labels, as well as classic hits. Also, in addition to the standard articles, interviews and CD recommendations, most chapters also include a suggested playlist of iPods or MP3 players, giving an overview of the country's musical styles. Almost every major country and style is covered - Congolese soukous, Algerian rai, Ethio-jazz, Nigerian Afro-beat, high life from Ghana, East African taraab, chimurenga and mbira from Zimbabwe, and many more.
Indeed, South Africa has three seperate articles focusing on pop, jazz and gospel, respectively. New and expanded material includes a look at Toureg music, Libyan music, the San and! Kung bushmen of Namibia, Botswana and post-war Liberia.
This makes it an essential buy for those interested in these little known countries. Other short side bars and notes highlight topics as diverse as Malagasy reburial rites, Nigerian pop stars abroad, the tribal musics of Kenya, the Chaoui Berbers of the Aures Mountains, and Moroccan music festivals.
Theres even an article on pioneering ethno-musicologist Hugh Tracey, who's recordings highlight now lost musical traditions from across sub-Saharan Africa. All in all, a great and wonderfully enlightening look at African music. Although smaller than the section on Africa, the Middle Eastern section of the book is just as interesting and informative, even if the region is covers is somewhat smaller.
There is also a quite up-to-date for the moment anyway chapter covering Egyptian pop music, and seperate chapters for the regional musics of other Arab countries. Whereas they were lumped together in the previous edition, articles on Lebanon, Syria and Iraq have been updated and expanded enough to merit their own chapters, each showing their countries unique styles of music. The many, diverse traditions of Iran, Turkey and Israel are each covered, ranging from the whirling dervishes to bellydance to Persian classical music.
There are also seperate articles covering ethnic groups such as the Kurds, Sephardic Jews and the Bedouin. The Caucasian republics - Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan - get pushed into this book too, due to shared cultural heritage with the Middle East. And, to top it off, theres a great new chapter about the rise of Arabesque, eletronic music that draws on Arab and Turkish influences think Natacha Atlas, or Rachid Taha's remix of "Ya Rayah".
Very cool So, is it worth the buy? I'd certainly say so. If your a world music fan, especially one interested in African or Middle Eastern music, this book will become an essential reference for you. Especially if you want to learn more but have no idea where to begin. Even if you consider yourself pretty familiar with the musical styles here, you'll still find plenty of gems you may have missed out on, or never heard of before.
Trust me on this one. It's already expanded my CD collection, and I've only had the new edition for a couple of days. The focus has greatly expanded from the previous editions too, which were a little heavily focused on pop music. This edition is more broad, showing a vast array of regional and cultural styles from across Africa and the Near East.
It's a must buy, and I strongly recommend it. Read more 17 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuse Zekeriyah 5. This encylopedic work the first volume in the series gives a brief survey of the different music traditions of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, divided by country, region, style or ethnicity.
Each article was written by different authors, so obviously there is some variation, but they include very thorough details on the history, culture, background and style of the music, along with a sample discography at the end. Most articles include one or two profiles of famous artists from that country. The first section, Europe, covers almost every country in Europe, as well as giving articles on the Saami people of Scandinavia, Gypsy music, regional cultures from Spain like the Basques and Galaciansand Bhangra, the festive dance music of Britain's Punjabi diaspora!
Everything you would expect is here, like Spanish flamenco, Portuguese fado, Greek rembetika, Norwegian fiddles, Scottish bagpipes, Celtic music from Ireland, Swiss alp horns, the haunting vocal music of Bulgaria and so forth. There are also quite a few surprises hidden in here too. Much of this section tends towards the folk, for obvious reasons. Along the way, theres also the haunting sound of the Armenian duduk, Nubian music, Persian and Turkish classical traditions, Lebanese dabke, dervish rituals, Georgian polyphonic singing, Sephardic romances, Iranian-American pop music and Palestinean folk songs which is great to see them acknowledge that Palestine DOES have a unique culture.
This section is very good, with a very rich mix of traditions and cultures. The biggest part of the book deals with Africa, with a very strong emphasis on regional pop music. Some countries like Libya, Somalia and Namibia are sadly overlooked, but all the powerhouses of African music are hero Its by far the most exhaustive part of the book, full of great information, important artists and numerous CD recommendations.
